The Awesome Bar is the search bar across the top of the Tickets, Reports, Mine, and Prioritize tabs. It provides a type-ahead, keyboard-based interface to our Search API. You can use it to find items by assignee, created within a certain date range, unassigned or unestimated items, and ones that have attachments.

A few unique features of Sprintly's Awesome Bar search functionality:

  • Search results return items across all products you are a member of.

  • Each search term is combined with an AND rather than an OR.

  • You can add a filter multiple time.

  • Negative filters (e.g. not tagged with "My Project").

Anatomy of an Awesome Bar Filter

Every filter is made up of a few different parts:

  • The attribute name (e.g. status or assignee)

  • The symbol (e.g. equals or does not equal)

  • The value

Sprintly's Awesome Bar offers a visual, type-ahead interface with tab completion to these filters. No more having to remember complicated pseudo SQL!

Free Text Searching

You can also just type in some text to search for items using free text. This will look for the term "file" or "attachment" in item titles, descriptions, and comments.

Searching by Attribute

Finding items by attributes like assignee or type is straightforward with the Awesome Bar.

Each item in Sprintly has a number of attributes that you can filter for. Below is a complete list of each attribute you can filter by and what they filter for.

Using Negative Filters

The Awesome Bar also lets you search for items that do not match a given filter. For instance status is not Backlog or not tagged with foo. To apply a negative filter choose "does not equal" for the symbol of your filter.

Export to CSV

By clicking the button to the right of the Awesome Bar will run a report that will send you a CSV file via email. CSV files can be imported into Excel, Google Spreadsheets, and many other analysis/reporting tools.

Using is and has to Filter by Item Facts

The is and has filters are two pseudo attributes that allow you to filter items based on certain facts about them. For instance you can filter by items that have attachments, has a PR opened, or is unassigned.


The has filter lets you filter for features an item possesses. Below is a list of values you can use with this filter and a short description of what it filters for.


The is filter lets you filter for facts about an item. Below is a list of values you can use with this filter and a short description of what it filters for.
