Hi Gerhard,

Thanks for your feedback. In parallell with the development of the new documents tool we are also developing a new project-wide search function which will be visible from all tools: Documents, Boards, etc. This will hopefully be released sometime in the autumn.

Until that is released, you can use the document search on the toolbar on the Project Overview.

Best regards,
Karolina

"a new project-wide search function"
But not able to search multiple projects at once?

Please, do not make a new search without this ability.
We have different project areas against different companies but often deal with the same customers in multiple projects. In todays solution I have to go through the projects one by one and look for documentation. I should be able to search all projects I have access to.

Hi Fredrik,
We have extended the search functionality to support searching across all user projects than just one specific project and we too believe that it's a mandate if we are doing something new. As of today the search is in Beta stage and is enabled for some who were kind enough to help test our product.
As of today a user can search in Documents, Cards and Milestones across all his projects.
Kindly let us know if you would like to give the beta product a try, we would be more than happy to help you out with it.

Best Regards,
Kailash K

Wonderful news!
Who should I talk to to try it out? Could you also add two of my colleges to test the new search?

E-mail sent to you both!

Hi Fredrik,

You have now been invited to the beta and the new search field should be available to you.

Right now the search is limited to support documents under documents tab (only the "old" version, not the beta) and all tollgates, cards and boards created in the last 4 months.

Best regards,
Karolina

First impression: wow, good job!

+ Easy access, always available.
+ Real fast searching.
+ Dynamic view of results, no slow page reload.
+ Result box stays open when you click a document.

-- Can't seem to open documents directly, extra click needed.
-- Not optimal overview of results with such a small box for results, would be nice with the option of opening results on a bigger page with all data on one page (filename, upload date, folder, project, uploader, last edited etc.) Maybe a little link "Expand results" top right in the results box that opens up a bigger page?

Hey guys,
couple of questions;
1. when can we expect the new search to work for all documents, and not just 4 months?
2. when do you plan to finish the beta and go live?

Hi Fredrik,

You should be able to search documents older than 4 months even now. The search is slowly being rolled out to all users. You can expect all users in your account to be able to use the new search right now for all projects in the accounts.

Please let us know if you get any feedback from them.

Best regards,
Karolina

Do you mean all users that have the beta? Or all users period?

Users in the beta:
Doesn't work for all documents, for older doucment names that we find in the old search, the new search gives no results.

Users not in beta:
Can't see the new search at all.

Hi,

This week we are rolling the new search out to around 100 enterprise accounts. Your account is one of them. The 27 users and 12 projects that are in your account (you can see them in the project office) should be included in the search. This means that the users in the account should all have the new search.

The search results should include all documents from the account projects - that are under the document tab or the recycle bin.

Please send me some screen shots if this doesn't work for you and we'll check it up.

Best regards,
Karolina

Still doesn't work here. I seem to have a new version of the search, but still can't find all documents. Users not in beta have no search yet. I'll get back to you if there is no change on monday!

Some feedback on the new search:
+ the new download arrow. Sweet!
-- If I click download arrow to view an image (preview on site), and then close the image with the X - the search results close and I have to search again. Not good.

The search results now just collapse on clicking any result item and expand again when you click again on the search input box. So you don't have to search again.
This should solve your "image preview" problem Karolina.
