[BUG] Filter doesn't work in iOS (5th Gen iPod Touch, iOS 6.1.3)

NK

Hey,

Got myself an iPod Touch since I doubt Windows Phone 8 version is coming any time soon. Anyhow...

I'm creating a filter (say, '7 days @home' as your help shows, tried the other permutation '@home 7 days' too by the way).

When the filter is applied, the expected result is: only tasks marked with @home due in the next 7 days. Actual results: pretty much anything regardless of the label but within 7 days range.

Change filter to just '@home'. Expected results: all tasks marked with @home label. Actual result: pretty much all tasks.

I did create labels on the iPod (as opposed to the web site) and I did mark the tasks on the iPod too. However, everything has been synced to the mothership, and I can see both the labels and assignments in the browser.

Am I missing something?

Thank you!

Hi Nick,

Please try the filter (7 days) & @home instead. That should give you the results you want.

Let me know if it works for you.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Brandon,

Tried as '(7 days) & @home' -- no love here. Still am getting results from other labels.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for giving that a try. Unfortunately, this issue persists with out current version and it will be fixed very soon as we're just finishing a complete rewrite of our app which will address this and other issues (bugs and performance issues).

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Brandon,

Fair enough! Thanks for clarifying.

Question: I know the web-based version allows for some complicated queries. Will it carry over to the new mobile version's filters?

Say, I mark my consulting gigs, product development, and general business tasks as @services, @products, and @business. Can I create a unified 3-day view by doing something like '(3 days) & (@services | @products | @business)' ?

What would be the most complicated query I can get away with?

Cheers,

Hi Nick,

We do plan on bringing as much as the features as we can to the mobile platform.

As for your question, yes you should be able to do that without issue (at least on the web version right now).

(3 days) & @services | @products | @business should work just fine. I believe you are able to do as many as you'd like. You can indeed get quite complicated if you'd like.

Thanks,
Brendon.
