How do you do that?
comments in tasks/conversations are collapsed and you have to expand them by clicking on the blue link called (More Comments), the link appears on the top of most recent comments.
Asana search should bring text in tasks & conversations, also keep in mind that Asana search engine only deals with the given word as Match Case, E.g. you mistakenly typed widge instead of widget, in such case asana will not return any results unless you typed widge by mistake in a task or conversation. This is really not a solution and asana should fix their search/indexing/ocr to be in competition with slack search or at least as Basecamp etc…
I 100% agree with this. It would be saving me SO much time if comments were indexed + searchable.
Very limiting to not have searchable comments. people asking for this since 2017… come on Asana… you guys are constantly releasing new features… where’s this on the backlog list?
Yes, it is quite crazy to not be able to search in comments for a project/task. Now back to looking for that needle in the haystack!
Just googled if Asana had this feature but apparently (still) not.
Wow - this has been open since 2017. That doesn’t give me much hope. I’m using Asana to track meeting notes but never imagined those notes would not be searchable until I needed to search them. Not sure if I can dump all of my data or not → that’s next up assuming Asana is not going to add this feature soon.
Discovery! If you right click on the three dots above the task list on a project you can select “Search this Project.” That search searches the comments for the project. An extra step, but maybe this helps someone out here.
The search is and has been working on comments for a long time now, @Marie can you confirm? you can’t search only on comments though.
search certainly doesn’t find anything in comments, it’s a pain
It definitely does. I just tried again and found a task based on a piece of comment I pasted in the search.
I can confirm too that it works
