I talked with a client today and they told me “we usually don’t use the search because it does not search inside comments for example”. I asked about reports (saved search) and the answer was the same: they kind of discarded the search from the beginning.
But the search is not always about searching for text! The Advanced search is very powerful, and usually, good reports involve a lot but not text: presence in projects or not, value of a custom field, assignee, due dates… Don’t limit yourself to the text search!
Any good report to share? I have one for “lost tasks” -> incomplete tasks due within the last 999 without an assignee
