Who can use this feature?

🔐 Available to anyone.

⭐️ Available on free and paid plans.

All the items inside a workspace are instantly searchable so you can always find what you are looking for. You can either search items by their title or their content. You can also use the search bar to filter items based on fields, mentions, internal links, or your open tasks.

To search by item title

  1. Open the workspace in which you'd like to search for items.

  2. Enter what you are looking for in the search bar in the top-left corner of your screen.

  3. Items are instantly searched by title and cluster.

To use full-text search across workspaces

To search the contents of items across workspaces, enter what you are looking for in the search bar and press Enter. The results will include all items that contain what you're looking for in the title or contents. Keyword matches inside the items will be highlighted, and Nuclino will automatically scroll to the first match in the item.

Once you find what you're looking for, you can hover over the item and click on Show in workspace to be taken to the exact location of the item in the workspace structure.

  2. Select the field you want to filter by.
