As a user within a large corporation our Asana instance has many teams defined. The large number of teams makes searching less productive as results from many teams appear. I know I can configure search each time to filter on specific teams. Over numerous searches however, this number of configure steps isn’t practical. As a user, I’d like the ability to configure and save my default search filter criteria so that I can avoid having to configure ‘advanced search’ each time.
Hi @Randy_Boutin1 when you do an advanced search is Asana you can use the starred icon (star at the top) to save that search to the bar on the left.
Yes, but I understand that starring a search only saves a specific search, including the search terms. I don’t believe I can easily recall my advanced filters to conduct subsequent searches.
I’d like to ‘star’ my combined search filters so that I can easily use new search terms that leverage those filters. In my case, I’m trying to easily search within my Asana team. It currently takes many clicks (and a sub-search) to select my Asana team search filter.
@Randy_Boutin1 - when you save a search, if you click the “Filter” button on the results screen, it should open the search bar with all your criteria pre-filled. It’s difficult to remove criteria (i.e., if your search includes a custom field, you can’t simply remove that criterion), but you can alter/add them pretty simply and save the result as a new search.
Thanks Stephen. That’s a reasonable work-around. I saved a general search filtered by my team. With it I can use your suggestion to add further search criteria.
