A part of any project management process is spent looking for existing information. Enter the Redmine search capability.
At the top right-hand side of Redmine is a simple search box.
Depending on permission settings and project membership a drop down menu option may show the current project. Simple search searches full text on the project currently displayed in that chooser.
Clicking on the word *Search* will immediately take you to the advanced search and results page. Notice the project chooser has followed, and there are checkboxes to limit search to specific types of entries. The checkboxes displayed only if the module is enabled at that project level.

h3. Search titles only
From the advanced search box, *Search titles only* can be enabled to limit results.
