Global search (Description, Comments)

Hi,
I think it would be usefull to have a option for searching the description and comment sections of all tasks in a list.

When using the search on a kanbanboard, only tasks with the keywords in the task-title are shown.

You mean an option in the filter popup? How should we handle this in the global search (if at all)?

I think it would be best, if this was added to the search popup (in the top bar on the magnifier-icon).

I think it would make sense to display all tasks containing the expression in the title first. After this all tasks with matched expressions in the comments or description could be displayed as a multi-lined Task.
The first line is the tasks title and the second/third line (maybe in italic and grey color) could be a preview of the matched expression in the context of the task (a few characters bevor and after the expression).

Something like this (popup after klicking the magnifier next to the alert-bell in the top bar):

I like that idea, I think it makes sense.
