Searching for a deleted task is an odd experience

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
A few issues.

  1. Deleted tasks don’t show by default in the search. This isn’t horrible, but it’s a little less than ideal because it means to you need to know to turn on the Deleted Tasks filter if you want to see them. So to keep an item easily searchable you need to mark it Complete, which is a little confusing if the task wasn’t actually completed. Also, the default filter when you add the deleted tasks search filter is “Any”, which doesn’t match the default search experience of “Not Deleted”.
  2. When I leave “Any” selected, it shows me “1 result” in the top left, but does not show the task in the list. Obviously this is just weird. (Screenshot attached)
  3. When I select “Deleted”, I do see the tasks that are deleted that I was following, but not tasks that were on a board I am a member of.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Delete Task
  2. Search for keyword within task with no filter, with deleted filter of “Any” and deleted filter of “Deleted”.

Does this sound like it may be the case?

And finally, I would suggest reaching out to our Support Team regarding the “1 results” shown as they will be able to look into this further with tools we do not have access to on the Community Team.

You can provide them with the below:
