      Hi Antony,
      Thanks a lot for your interest. Actually it was not exactly search queries to identify the issues on the board. Previously you had to choose one project and identify Sprint field. With the upcoming YouTrack 5 you can choose multiple projects and just input search query applied to issues from all these projects. By the way, you also may edit visibility settings for particular board.
