Search file contents

Hi, It would be nice if implements a feature to allow one to filter the contents of the files stored on all Monday’s boards in the search everything section. I would like to know if it is on Monday´s plans to implement such feature. For now my Company relies on Dropbox to make this type of content search.

Hey @agranville

Thanks for the suggestion! Are you talking about locating a file based on the content inside the file itself rather than just the name of the file?

Hi Julia! Thanks for your reply

Yes exactly. We would like to be able to locate documents (pdf, word) based on their contents.
One of our uses of Monday is to manage our projects that involves storing lots of different types of documents, such as contracts, reports and invoices. Very often, when we need to prepare a new report, we first make a search on our documents repository in order to find any other similar report, so we can save time. Currently, we are relying on Dropbox seach feature, but we would like to have it on Monday so we could use a one tool do all :slight_smile:

I also find this feature extremely useful! It can definitely bring closer to your vision of one tool to rule all!

I’d also include .csv to the list of files I can search within.


I am also interested in this feature. At least, if not in the document linked/hosted on, we should be able to search within new Doc feature.

I am currently looking for a way to do this myself. Has there been any updates added that allows for a file content search?
