How can I include "project" in filter criteria?

LA

I want to filter tasks that meet certain criteria WITHIN a project. Is this possible?

thanks

Hi Luls,

Unfortunately, at this time it's not possible to add a Project to a search criteria. We hope to improve this in the future.

Feel free to vote on it :) http://todoist.com/Vote_iOS/showProposal/29/

Thanks,
Brendon.

I think it's important to prioritize higher the ability to query projects -- because when creating a to-do, Project is the #1 most prominent field (besides Content).

You have to click "More Options" to even see the Labels... and yet querying the labels is possible but not projects? It doesn't make intuitive sense.

Hello Josh,

Unfortunately not, but we'll look into adding such option in future updates.


Best regards,

Agreed that this would be really helpful. I am finding that my to-do list each day is way too chaotic, bordering on unusable unless I can figure out some alternatives.

This is a key piece of functionality that I use in remember the milk - would make it difficult to jump to todoist without this being in place. Surely its a straightforward piece of coding to enable a further piece of refinement in search functionality??

Look forward to the next update :-)

Yes please add this ASAP. Could I suggest that, as a way of avoiding ongoing requests for the same feature, you publish a prioritised upcoming features list and invite user input. It doesn't mean you have to commit to dates.

I know you have a suggestion box, but this doesn't indicate what YOUR priorities might be (which ultimately determines what gets implemented :-)

Hello all,

I've recently upgraded my account to Premium hoping to use features like this. As @georgekao well said, it's kind of counter intuitive a filter without project query option.

Please include this update as a priority for future updates and I, and many others, will not hesitate in recommending Todoist to friends and colleagues.

Thanks in advance!

I am set to renew my Premium account in the coming months. I am really happy with the development of Todoist and I am ready to transfer all of my tasks from RTM to Todoist. But Todoist can't become my main task manager without an option to filter by project. Please add this feature soon! Thanks.

just purchased premium to get useful lists. If filtering by projects is not available, this becomes rather useless...

Definitely need this to be able to look only at Work-related tasks (based on projects) while I am at work and only at Home-related tasks while I am at home. Tagging everything makes no sense.

Please allow filtering by label or searching via text within a project.

Please also ensure these are savable as Filters

Or improve support for labels (e.g., mass edit) and I'll just ignore projects...

It seems pretty obvious that this feature is important - especially to premium users.

May we have a response from someone at Todoist? It's been 6 months since the last "future updates" response.

Maybe the staffs in Todoist forget to put this item in their Todoist List :) Or maybe it is tagged as Maybe/Someday based on the GTD protocol, and has no hard or soft deadline.
