Why they does not work as I expected all search operators

Hello Trello !

I recently started using Trello, this is a great program.

Tell me why they does not work as I expected all search operators ( due:day/due:week/due:month/ edited:day, etc ) ?

Can you explain more? What are you trying to search? Show a specific example please.

I attached a picture with a card and a search screen
the search does not work as expected:
1 - sometimes the search finds cards that have the sign completed and which are scheduled for August

2- sometimes the search does not find the cards that are scheduled for this week, and after changing the schedule, a considerable time passes

1) So to get rid of ones that are completed, you'll need to add an additional search operation for due:incomplete 


2) You're currently using due:day in that screenshot so it will only pull things with a due date within 1 day, if you want to see cards scheduled for that week, try due:week

Hi !

1) I thought that the planned actions never include the "completed" ones and therefore it is not necessary to add a filter.

Moreover, it was not clear why completed cards for the last month get into the filter "due:day".

2) the picture clearly shows that both cards have one date, and the filter selects only the first one.    There is no talk about the "week" in the screen

I would like to clarify if there could be reasons why the filter / search might not work as it should
Examples of such reasons are :
Long "board name", Long "list name", prohibited characters in the board and list names (".","/","\","!"), too many personal boards, browser cookie problems, etc.

Sincerely, Victor

P.S.  I have problems finding both in the Chrome browser on Windows and in the android application

and in FireFox on Windows ( all browser and application updated ).

Gotcha, not sure I can actually help out here. 

I think the support team always has something to answer.
