Description

Context:
In order to identify each task, we use an internal code as a prefix of each subject task. Whe we need to display a list of task that match a specific code we use the filter on the subject.

Problem:
The problem is that there is only type of filter is "contains" that will search the text pattern at any position of the string, so it can happend that a character combination inside the strign match the condition.

Possible solutions:
  • Add a filter type "start with" (like Excel)
  • Add a filter type based on regular expression

Ran into this need today.
Need subject filter to be more flexible and powerful. Just contains is not enough and I need to be able to filter based on multiple subject values, i.e. [Subject1] AND [Subject2] AND [Subject3]
Having OR capability would also be ideal.
