We've previously announced filtering by keywords for todos, which was a quick way to search for a specific todo inside a project, but the issue is that you don't always know where something that you are looking for is located.
To solve this, today we are introducing real time (search-as-you-type) search, that will find anything that contains your search query across all the projects, todos, discussions, and updates that you're in. You'll find a new search icon on the top right of the navigation bar. 🕵️♂️
We're using highly sophisticated algorithms to ensure that the search results are smart, and they consider things such as who posted the message, when it was posted, and how the keywords come together, to ensure that you can find what you're looking for right away. When you post a new item, it's indexed and searchable by others in less that a second.
We think that's pretty cool. 😎🤓
The Future of Search.
Of course, this is just the beginning. In the future, we'll be developing search even more to make finding what matters to you even easier.
- Searching inside PDFs - The results will show PDFs that contain you search term inside the actual PDF file. That's great for quickly finding those uploaded reports or proposal.
- Searching for contents of images - Using machine learning to understand what's actually contained in an image, and then showing that image in the search results. For instance, if you upload an image of a cup of coffee and then search for "coffee", we'll show the image in the search results.
- Character Recognition - Being able to search text that is within images.
- Filters and additional options - Perhaps you remember than John from accounting uploaded a report, but you can't remember the exact name? You'll be able to search for all PDFs uploaded by John.
