Searching for cards by label from the search bar



I'm trying to search for cards in a board / workspace that have a specific label 

I want to do that from the search so as to be able to save the search for future usages

However it seems that it's not working and the results are inconsistent from the search bar.

When I look up the cards with the following label "Project Bible" from the search card menu at the right of the board, Trello finds the card

However when I type the exact same label name in the search bar using the syntax, Trello finds no corresponding card although I can the card in the board

Any ideas on how to approach that ?

@iliaskzz try:


thank you @Hannah Morgan I tried it and it works. That was very helpful 


Maybe Trello should add some instruction about the syntax to use when using that search feature.

Hello, @iliaskzz ; welcome to the Community

To search by label in trello you must do the following: 

label: (here the name of the label)

I enclose a link where you can find help about it:

thanks @Jose Luis Gaitan I tried the syntax you mentionned label: 


It does not seem to work neither

Any thoughts ? Thanks

In the search bar you can see an arrow at the right side. If you click on it, you'll go to the search panel and I'm sure you can do the search there perfectly.
