My company relies on Trello heavily for tracking our inventory. It is great for us if we want to search an individual item, but we run into trouble when we have multiples of one item followed by individual numbers.
We want to label multiple inventory pieces as "Car Part" but then each individual card gets labeled as "Car Part 1" then another card gets labeled "Car Part 2," "Car Part 3," etc.
Our issue comes up when we try to search a specific "Car Part" number. If I want to search "Car Part 5," Trello displays every single "Car Part" card in a random order and does not even include the number I am specifically searching for.
I am curious to see if anyone else has run into this dilemma and how they fixed it or changed their labeling system to account for this.
Welcome to the Community!
Have you tried using the label search function?
If you open your board, click on show menu, then search cards, it'll give you a list of your labels, if you click on the label for Car Part 1, it'll only show you the cards with that label on it in each list.
I have different labels for different workouts, e.g. I have Sh'BAM (which is added to all my Sh'BAM dance cardio workouts), but then I also have labels for Sh'BAM 34 (my favourite one) and Sh'BAM House Party Nights, Sh'BAM Hip Hop Remix, so that I can see all the Sh'BAM cards, or the specific release that I was doing.
Does this help at all?
Woohoo! I'm glad that worked!
You're right, they do different things. The search at the top left searches all boards for things like words etc, the Show Menu top right, search only searches within the board you are currently in.
Does that help?
Let me know!
