Searching one board only on Trello

I can't figure out how to use the search button ONLY for the current board I'm on. I've got several boards & the search returns results for ALL boards. Help! Thanks!

Hi

Search feature on a board is available by board menu. See this

@paul in addition to the comment from @Ludo regarding the ability to filter on the current board, you can also restrict search to the current board using the "board:" search modifier. You can see the full list of modifiers here:

https://help.trello.com/article/808-searching-for-cards-all-boards

The reason you might like to do this is because the way that conditions in filtering are combined is always "OR" rather than "AND". This means that if you filter by title and label, then you'll see any cards on the board that either have the title match or have that label.

If you use search modifiers to show cards on the current board that have a label and title match it'll give you a narrower list. It also allows you to negate conditions such as "cards without label X".

The only downside is that it displays the cards in a results list, not on the board.
