Include Project description in Search results

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing: I often search addresses in Asana to find what project it is related to. Our addresses are always found in the Description for the project, but it doesn’t seem that using Search covers that area.

Steps to reproduce: Search for something you know is in the Description of a Project and view zero results or results that do not include that project.

Browser version: Google

Only uploading one image doesn’t help show you, but here’s the search that doesn’t show what I’m looking for even though I know it’s there.

Hi @Mandy2 and welcome to the Forum!:wave:

I understand what you mean here. Unfortunately, this is not a bug, but rather a search limitation.
As it stands, the Search does not cover the Project Description.

I’ve gone ahead and moved this thread to the #productfeedback category to allow all of you to comment and submit their vote. I’ve also slightly edited the title to make this thread more discoverable to other users.

Please, let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. Have a great day! :grinning:

Natalie - any update on this? It would be incredibly helpful to be able to produce reports or searches on words or phrases in the Project description (i.e. be able to select the search for either “All”, “Tasks”, “Conversations” or “Project Description”).

I am think here of putting clients’ industry codes in the Project Description. Given the regularity that people are going to want to search by industry groups, I cannot understand why this isn’t already a feature.

Unfortunately not @Kevin_Swannack but rest ensure that I’ll keep you informed here as soon as I get an update. In the meantime I would suggest you to have a look at this great workaround provided by our Certified Pro Larry and in case you have missed it, you can also have a look at the integration Asana2Go recommended here.

I hope this helps Kevin! :slight_smile:
