Advanced Search

Not being able to find the conversation you're looking for is one of the most frustrating things that can happen! 😡 💢

We agree, which is why Front's advanced search engine allows you to search for any conversation. Layer multiple search parameters to have precise and even more relevant results - whether it's a specific tag, a reminder, who the conversation is assigned to, which inbox it's in, or all of the above!

  • Is there a way to use boolean search terms, like is:open -"example", to effectively rule out certain search results?

  • Jason, not right now. Hopefully in the future!

  • Cori Morris tbh it's a stretch to call this search "advanced" if it doesn't even support boolean negation... What's the point of tagging if you can't filter (include AND exclude) accordingly? Any idea on if / when this would be implemented?

  • Cori Morris We would love to have the ability to exclude specific terms, tags, etc. in an advanced search.

  • Brad Nihls Our Produce team is aware of this request. We haven't prioritized it yet because we're still very much focused on improving our current search. I'll be sure to let you know when we build this capability.

  • we're struggling with being able to search for emails in our google-apps hosted email account that pre-date when we started with FrontApp -- is that a known issue? Cori Morris

  • Hello, I'm here to bring this back up since it's definitely not an Advanced Search without boolean logic and other features that are available in Gmail. Mainly, I want to utilize `-subject:{search term}`
