The New Smart Search:<br>Get Results Perfectly Sorted

Some of us are lucky to have a perfect memory and can easily name every task that they commented on last month. However, the more tasks you handle, the harder it is to keep every little detail in your head. Well, fear no more. Wrikeman to the rescue.

Introducing a smarter search

One of the biggest challenges in building a good search tool is to find the best way to sort results by their relevance. For example, the word in the task title is normally more important than the word in the comments. In the same way, a task you’ve been working on recently is more likely in your “I’m feeling lucky” result than a task completed a year ago.

That’s why we’ve built in a powerful full-text search engine and spent a lot of time building a very smart engine to rank the results and (hopefully) show the most relevant ones on top.

How does the new engine rank your results?


The unique characteristic of the new Wrike search is the ability to sort tasks by their relevance. Here are the main criteria:

  • Relative importance of the keyword location (in descending order of importance): task name, description, comments, files, and people’s names.
  • The majority of the search phrase found in a single field. For example, a task with all required words in the title appears higher in the list than a task that has one keyword in the description and the rest in comments.
  • The time of the latest activity. Recently updated tasks are more likely to be at the top of the list.
  • We also apply some advanced machine learning to further improve search results.
 
The same way as before, you can use advanced keywords to search specifically in the task comments or files.
