The search dialog in the NEXT app allows users to search for users, projects, and themes. The search dialog returns results that match on all provided keywords.
This page explains the additional options to refine searches, which is typically used by advanced users.
Search only in specific fields
Searching in the NEXT app by default searches through all searchable content, which is organized as "fields" inside each of the entities such as projects and themes. You can restrict searching to specific fields to reduce the number of unintended matches.
For example, if you want to find all projects that have the word "e-commerce" in their name, you can use this search expression:
Those are the available special fields:
|is||Type of entity||
|name||Name of the project||
|labels||Labels assigned to a project||
|status||Status of a project||
|theme||Name of the theme of the project||
|name||Name of the theme||
|display_name||Display name of the user||
|full_name||Full name of the user||
|Email address of the user||
You can use double-quotes to search for content with spaces, for example:
is:theme "Consumer Satisfaction"
This would search for all themes that match "Customer Satisfaction" in their name.
Requiring fields to match
By prefixing a "+" (the plus character) to an element in the search expression you can make this element required.
This would search for anything with a status of completed (i.e. a project), and the term "e-commerce" matching in any field.
