What is 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.
