Global search - any news?

I think it has already been discussed somewhere but again, I would like to hear what the situation is: Will there be any global search for cards? :slight_smile:
I am having bigger and bigger issues in finding stuff.

in the meantime, any details on your search use cases and scenarios would be helpful to have (what kinds of things you would like to be able to search for? What causes/prompts you to want to search for them?)

Easiest would be tags, related todos, related person

Another would be, I m doing a 9 month long course , happens every Monday . I do capturing of those in daily notes but would love option to see all related notes in search. We have tonnes of homework to be done, it’s a pain to keep going back early notes .

Tags can sort of help with that in their current state, right? Even if search were implemented, you’d still only get the cards with that phrase in it, not the related notes around it, so if you used a tag, you could click that tag in any space and that’s essentially a saved search for that phrase / person / tag. And then within that Tag dialog, you can further search by any word or other tag across your global instances of that tag.

Somewhat related, I’ve asked for a todo box to essentially be tag so you could see all your open checkboxes across spaces in the same manner as a tag, and then further search by additional words or tags.

what would determine whether a note was ‘related’ in this case?

Configurable but by default, only 1st degree of relation only

Tinderbox solves this problem with concept of alias , which are closely related to Originals but have their own identity . Makes sense ?

Tags can help, but it assumes that you know what you will be searching for in the future. So while it helps for things you know you are tracking now, it won’t help if you are trying to find something else that you never thought of tagging previously.

I just can never assume that the current “me” is smart enough to know what my future “me” will want to do
