Are you working in a super crowded mural (or you're in a mural created by someone else) and want to find something specific? Now you can search any mural using keywords in the Find panel!

In the Find panel, you can search for sticky notes, text, shapes, object color, tags, or which member last edited an object. When you click on one of these options, all related objects are highlighted in the mural. Below each option, you’ll also see the number of each object in the mural.

You can also combine this functionality with the Search bar function.

Note: If you apply tags to your sticky notes, tags will appear as an option to filter on in the Find panel.

Here’s how to use Find:

  1. In the top right of your mural, click the Find icon. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut CTRL + F (or CMD + F on Mac) to quickly open the Find panel.

  2. Type in words or a phrase in the Search bar. You can also filter by object type, color, tags (if applicable), or the last person who edited the object.

  3. Click the < or > buttons in the top-right to navigate the results. You can also use the arrow keys on your keyboard.

Note: Any content that’s added or edited during Private Mode (keeping authors anonymous) will only show under the mysterious Private Mode avatar.

Cluster your Find panel results

Using Find to filter will highlight all objects that match your filter options, and the rest of the objects sort of fade into the background. You can select all the highlighted objects by holding Shift and clicking and dragging your mouse over the Find results on the mural.

For a quick way to cluster similarly tagged sticky notes together, use the Arrange function from the sticky note toolbar. For example, you might want to cluster all high priority stickies together.

Here’s how to cluster sticky notes by tag:

  1. Use the Find panel to highlight all sticky notes with the tags you want.

  2. Hold Shift and click and drag your mouse over the mural’s Find results.

  3. Click the Arrange button in the sticky note toolbar.

  4. Select whether you want to group the stickies in a grid, a row, or in a cluster.

From there, just drag and drop your grouped stickies to their own area in a mural, so you can focus on high priority things first.
