Kendis provides options to search and filter board data. 

Text Search

Search box at the top of the board start showing the relevant results as soon as you start typing. Text is matched from following data

  • Item ID (Can be Jira ID or Kendis)

  • Item Summary (Title of the card)

Press Enter vs Click on the card

As you start typing the system will show you the relevant cards on the board, if you just press enter the text string that you wrote will be used as search parameter and all relevant results will be shown. 

e.g., if you start typing FEA-2 and then press enter, it will show you all the cards like FEA-2, FEA-21 and so on. As it just takes the FEA-2 as search string and matches the related card.

If you click on the card in the auto complete list to e.g., FEA-2 then you will only see FEA-2 on the board.

Advanced Filters

Kendis offers following filters, all of these filters are multi-select filters.
