How to Search Content in Guru
Because Guru content is stored in Cards, search results are always Cards. You can search Guru using Keywords, Tags, Collections, Slack, and within Boards.
Searching with Keywords
Search with Keywords in the extension or the web app (app.getguru.com) by typing into the search bar.
For more insight into how keywords work in Guru's Search Algorithm, look here.
Searching with Tags
Search with Tags in the extension or the web app (app.getguru.com) by first typing a '#', which will bring up a list of all the Tags used by your Team. When the Tag you want is selected (denoted with a blue overlay), press enter to search with it.

Searching with Collections
Search with Collections in the extension or the web app (app.getguru.com) by typing a '!', which will bring up a list of all the Collections you have access to on your Team. When the Collection you want is selected (denoted with a blue overlay), press enter to search with it. You can search using multiple Collections and tags.
Searching with Recent Searches
Recent search terms you looked for now appear as a searching option beneath the search operations Collection, Tag Category, and Tags. This allows you to more easily search for something again and reference historical searches. Search with Recent Searches by selecting a term in the dropdown list. Clicking will populate the search bar.
You can delete a historical search by clicking on the “x” to the right of the term if you don’t want it to appear again.
Searching with Slack

Searching within Boards
Search within Boards by first navigating to the Board (either in the web app or the extension) you would like to search in. Once in the Board, search in the search field and the results will be limited to the Board you're in.
