Please pimp the search functionality


Level 4



We have been working with Workfront for 11 years, which means we have seen it develop from the attask days onwards.

One part that has not really been improved over the years is the search functionality.


I open this idea now as I really do not understand why nobody has layed an eye on so simple things like row logic.

In 95 % of my search cases I am searching for a Project. Means I have to set "Project" as filter first (why is there no option to set "Project" as my default filter). And then there is no grouping by status and always completed projects are listed first. But mainly I am searching for open projects...


I am curious if other users feel the same pain.

Agree! I get a lot of complaints about the search tool.  It would be super helpful to be able to save a  set of filters that I use often, similar to way the custom filters for lists works and also choose more than one object type at a time. For example, we mostly need to search Projects and Requests for the same key word but are forced to search them separately.
