Completed — projects for which the artifacts have been delivered.
Favorites — a list of your favorite projects.
All Projects — a list of all active and complete projects.

Search for a project
As your project portfolio grows, it may be easier to use the search feature to quickly locate a specific project. The search feature applies to whichever tab has been chosen. For example, if you click the Active tab and enter the term “sapphire”, the list will filter to display only those projects that contain “sapphire” in the name.
To search all projects, click the All Projects tab and then enter your search terms.
