Searching and Filtering Issues

This feature allows you to search for issues by typing in a keyword and selecting a field, such as Description. For example, you could search the Description field for the word timesheet, and all issues with this criterion would show up in the list.

This feature is helpful for finding issues that may be related to a certain project, period, user, etc. without having to read through the entire issue list manually.
