Within Teamwork, project items you create have a unique ID number associated with them which allows you to identify and locate these items very easily.

Items with unique IDs:

  • Projects
  • Task Lists
  • Tasks
  • Subtasks
  • Sub-subtasks
  • Messages
  • Milestones
  • Files 
  • Notebooks
  • Links
  • People
  • Comments

For all items with unique IDs, you will find the ID in the URL for the individual item.

Searching by unique item ID

You can use these IDs in the search box of your site to search for the specific items. Do not include the # when searching by ID.

If you are using search while viewing a project, you will see an additional option to restrict the search to only that project.
