Global search in zoho sprints

Global Search

Global search helps you refine your search results more accurately. Say, if you have hundred projects in your team and you require one particular task in a specific project. What will you do? You will manually search for that particular task name within the selected project which is cumbersome. However, in global search all that you need to do is enter the task's name or ID in the search to quickly find the task. You can search the items across projects or within the selected project. 


  • Search for relevant work items in specific projects
  • Search items either using their ID or name
  • Select multiple projects and view the work items here

Search for work items  

  1. Click    in the top panel next to the global timer.  
  2. Enter the item name or # id in the Search field to search for particular work items.  

Search work items by projects  

You can search the work items specific to particular projects in your team using the global search.  
  1. Select the list of projects from the drop down.  
  2. Enter the project name in Search for a project here   field.  
  3. Select   Clear Selection   to deselect the selected projects.  

  • By default the selected project appears next to the work item search field. 
  • When you access global search from Projects, the recently accessed project appears here. 
  • You have to select at least one project from the list to fetch the search results. 
  • You can select a maximum of only 10 projects. 
  • Click  View more  to view the list of all the work items specific to your search. 

Advanced search

Advanced search refines your search even better by enabling you to set criteria. You can streamline your search further by choosing particular fields in the Group by Results section.
