Timeline Filter/Search

Thought the ability to do a global timeline search has been a great step forward, it would be useful to be able to search/filter for a term within the current request.

We do have some long running requests, which have extensive timelines on them. I know you can filter by type of timeline post, but even then the number of posts can be excessive and also they will not all be expanded.

Having the ability filter/search the timeline of the current request would really be useful and a lot less resource than having to use the Global search when you already know the request reference and just want to locate specific posts in the current request.


At the moment I have using the Print option to generate the whole timeline in the browser and then using the find option.

Cheers

Hi @Martyn Houghton,

You can actually already do this using the timeline option in the global search. 

If you wanted to search for the string email in change request  CH00000123, you would enter the following into the query input:

email AND reqref:CH00000123

This would return all timeline entries from that specific request, that contain the word email.

Kind regards,

Steve

Thanks for the advice for focusing down the Global Search option. The problem is that it displays them as individual posts, rather than in the context and order of the timeline, so you can undertake an action (such as doing an email) while viewing the filtered timeline entries.

Hi @Martyn Houghton,

Actually we have a change for this, is not that simple, but will be done. The first thing we wanted to do is filter on a specific person. You sometimes know that you or someone else posted but can't find it.

Also based on on some text. But it can take some time to be implemented.

Cheers,

Daniel.
