How to filter issues across all/multiple projects

Hi Backloggers,

Do you know that you can view or filter-search issues across multiple/all projects? This is useful for various purposes:

  • to view issues across multiple/all projects
  • to filter issues by their statuses (or other conditions) across projects
  • to track issues handled by a user across projects
  • filter issues based on categories and other conditions, across projects
  • for reporting on multiple projects (you can generate CSV, Excel, or printable list from the results)

 

Step 1 - Click on the 3 dots menu in the global menu, and then click “Find Issues”.

 

Step 2A - On this page, you can " Find Issues in All Projects". Select the conditions to filter the issue results.

To select multiple projects, hold ctrl and click on the projects to select them.

To select all projects, just leave the project field blank by clicking on the blank option.

 

You can also perform a search by keywords.

If you did not enter any conditions for the search, it means “everything” by default.

 

Note:

(i). The search is only within projects where you are a member. If you are an administrator of the Backlog space but not a project member, you can’t search that specific project. 

(ii). If there are too many issues, the search might take some time.

 

Step 2B - You can also search by date and keywords.

 

Step 3 - The results will load at the bottom of the page. 

You can click the headings to sort the issue results.

 

And also export the list in CSV, Excel or printable page format.

 

I hope this tip is useful for you.
