Searching task

When you want to locate a task with its subject, either part of or the entire subject, use the search function. The search function in Tasifier is context sensitive. You can search tasks from your own tasks listed in the My Tasks page, from tasks to be due, from tasks with specific tag(s) assigned, from a Task Pool, or from the entire project, depending on the way tasks are currently listed in the Main Pane. For example, you can search task from a Task Pool by first selecting the Task Pool from the Left Pane, then enter the word in the task's subject in the Search box, at the top right of the page, then press Enter.

As said above, other than searching Task Pool you can search from other pages. Here are the pages that support the search function:

  • My Tasks (and the My Tasks page of other members)
  • Overdue/Due Tomorrow/Due This Week/Due Next Week
  • Tag
  • Task Pool
  • Project

If you are unclear about the location of a task, try to search from the project. By selecting the project from Left Pane, all the tasks in the project are listed in the Main Pane. Then, you can find your task by searching there.

Refining search result

If you failed to find the task you want by searching, you may want to refine the search result by adjusting the search criteria. At the top of the search result you can configure the search criteria. The layout of search criteria may look differently when searching from different pages, but you can always add and remove an item by moving your mouse cursor over the related criteria.

In projects

If you want to search tasks from more than one project, move your mouse pointer over the In projects section and click + at the end of the project list. Select the project(s) to be included in the popup menu, then click Apply to re-list the tasks base on the new search criteria. You may also remove project selection by unchecking it from the menu.
