Left hand search filters to include "OR" joins

Status: Accepted

When I customize my Projects or Tasks list view pane, I'm able to select filter criteria.  However, I cannot use an "or" join- only "and".  Could that feature be added in the future?  As in the below screenshot, I want to show Projects / Tasks for which I am either the Owner OR Team member- I do not fall into both categories for all Projects / Tasks.





Another good feature would be to create more advanced grouping- such as combining two sets of "or" statements and joining them with an "and" statement.  For Example, to be able to filter on:


  Owner Contains (my name) AND

  DueDate is in the next 30 days


  Team Contains (my name)


That would provide me visibility into projects I'm a member of and those which I am responisible for in the next 30 days.

Our team has a similar request for general searching. When selecting from a list, the user can enter an exact string of the desired text and the system will narrow down on this text if it appears anywhere in the item or its descriptors. Conventional search operators do not work for more advanced searches.

Some sample conventions that might help in narrowing down lists to select from.


Operator or Convention Purpose
+ include both terms; narrows the search
- exclude by term; narrows the search
, include either term; broadens the search
 NEAR find keywords within 10 words of each other
> greater than
< less than
>= greater than or equal to
<= less than or equal to
= equal to
$ * truncate, cut off
“ ” search for exact phrase"
