Find/Search Keywords and Text in FigJam

One feature that makes Miro slightly more useful than FigJam is the ability to search/find keywords. Sticky notes can be difficult to dig through if you are looking for something in particular.

Use case: I interview a set of participants. I have 100s of notes. A month later, I’m working on a feature and I remember that one of our users mentioned something that was relevant to my work. How do I got back and find what they said?

I would love to see funtionality around search for FigJam boards. If you have a very large board with a lot of cards for example with text, it is difficult to find a specific text/idea that you may want to read more about.

Agreed! My team and I have already begun using FigJam with our clients to keep all research and design in one place.

But we are quickly running into workflow issues such as this as we begin our Synth process.

Fingers crossed this one comes soon!

Would be amazing if we could search the text on a FigJam board. We’ve been using it for research synthesis and the number of stickies can get overwhelming. Would be great if there is an easy way to search for a specific piece of text within a sticky note or any other text.

A search in figjam is much needed for big boards :slight_smile: thanks. please look at http://www.miro.com/ for the UX of the search functionality
for example miro reduces the opacity of any elements that doesn’t have the keyword so you are able to locate where the keyword is by sight

I am using FigJam do analyze user research studies (by doing affinity mapping). I am finding it frustrating that I cannot search for keywords within the sticky notes.

Any update on this feature? It’s a lifesaver, makes or breaks the tool.

Absolutely
When boards get large, it’s nearly impossible to navigate the information without a search text feature. The lack of such a feature seriously compromises the viability of a tool such as this.

Inside FigJam files, I’m having extreme difficulties searching for specific post-its on large discovery boards. It is taking me A LOT of time: wich makes me considering returning to Miro or Mural for product discoveries.
If there were tools to write and search for words or phrases inside FigJam, it would resolve this annoying and time consuming problem.

Does anyone else experience this? Is it possible to use official plugins in FigJam files to workaround this?
