The Filter Button disappeared.

Danny Fisher-Bruns I'm New Here Jan 04, 2019

My filter button, which I used to use on a daily basis, has suddenly disappeared from the menu. This hasn't happened to any of my coworkers who use the same board. 

See below for a screenshot. Filter used to be right there between stickers and change background (Also, it does not show up when I click More either)

Any advice on how to get the Filter button back?

Hi @Danny Fisher-Bruns!

It looks like they’re playing with changing the UI a bit. Next to your search box, do you see that funnel icon/button? I’d hazard a guess that’s where the Filter option went (I’m assuming it’s being A/B tested, as I don’t have it to confirm my suspicion either way).

Hope this helps!

Wow! That's it!

I never would have noticed that. So, I guess this is good A/B testing feedback if Trello is listening -- the old layout made a lot more sense to me

Thanks Devon. I have the same issue, but in my case there is no search box either, as per the image below.

Any further suggestions?

Hi @Schalk Lubbe! Oh goodness, it looks like yours has a "Search Cards" in its place. I think they must be testing effective placement for these things. Does the Filter Cards show if you click "More"?

Schalk Lubbe I'm New Here Feb 12, 2019

Hi Devon,

No, the filter cards does not show when I click "More."

But, thanks to your comment about the "Search cards!" If I click that, it looks like I was used to it looking before. I can filter on both labels and people.

Thanks for your help!

No filter or search option.jpgThe UI changes are getting pretty frustrating especially with the filter option which is one of the most used features for our team.  My boards have now had the ability to filter removed completely.

Same here - this is very irritating!

Same... They just removed probably one of the most important feature. Now our team has to go through dozens of cards to check the ones that apply to them...

Hope it changes soon

Glad to know I'm not alone. Please return the filter...or tell us where it's now hidden.

I was just about to raise the same question! My filter button has disappeared which led to a very embarrassing meeting and also unproductive!

How do we get this noticed and an issue raised with Trello?

I have encountered the same problem as well, the search bar and filter had suddenly disappeared. I managed to find a solution by using the hotkey - pressing "f". 
But it's still of great inconvenience and I hope it gets fixed soon!

The filter box also just disappeared from my Trello board menu, and it's nowhere to be found... not under the "... More" menu. Very strange! WTF Trello! Fortunately, the "f" hotkey still works and shows the filter menu.

Same here, I do really need that function, that's probably the main reason for me to use trello...

Same here, I know it changed places, I searched it everywhere ... I have no filtering capabilities whatsoever as of today.

Hey guys! FOUND THE SOLUTION, same thing happened to me, filter completely disappeared but found a way to keep using it on the trello help page using keyboard shortcuts "To open the card filter menu, use the "f" keyboard shortcut. To filter only your cards, using the "q" keyboard shortcut. To remove all filters, use the "x" keyboard shortcut."

While the "f" keyboard shortcut works great (for now!) I wonder what the heck is up... Why eliminate this from the UI? Is Atlassian/Trello planning to do away with the filter function altogether in the future?

Does Atlassian monitor and respond to these threads?
