Many people have complained about Sections not showing up in a search when searching by project but I have a different request: to be able to “Search By Section” so only tasks in that section will show in the search results.
This is how it used to work as shown in this 2014 article: “A new way to search your tasks” here: https://blog.asana.com/2014/06/search-section/
The reason I need this:
I need to be able to search for incomplete subtasks with completed parent tasks.
Parent tasks that have been completed are moved to a “COMPLETED” section, even though they still might have incomplete subtasks.
The only two ways to find incomplete subtasks with completed parents would be either as mentioned above (with the ability to search by section) OR with the ability to have multiple criteria in the advanced search, so for example, if I were able to search for: (subtasks only) AND (parent task is complete) but this multi-criteria doesn’t exist either to my knowledge.
