Returning a Search based on exact string

I initially set up my notes with tags to indicate a particular status. However I found that when I searched on a Tag it returned results based not only on the tag but also when the tag was a substring of another.

For example I have 2 tags Active and inActive. When I do a search on the tag Active it also returns items with the tag InActive.

Am I missing something in the way I creat tag searches?
Is there a way to specify That the search only returns a tag based on an exact string?

I am using Agenda only on an IPad Pro 2018. I have the latest App and the full version of Agenda.

Yes, it seems to search in the tag, indeed. Your best bet would be choose differing tag words (eg Active, Stalled). We will try to improve the search options in future.

Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks for the prompt response. I had already used what you suggested as the workaround.

Early days yet I am finding Agenda quite a powerful product. With a little bit of tinkering and workarounds I find I can do most things I need. It also makes me think about what I really need and don’t need.

Looking forward to what comes next.
