Filter tasks, including only certain projects

U

I use a label to identify tasks which I am ready to work on. I can filter on that label, but I want to restrict which projects get included when I filter.

Use case: I have a number of "work" projects, each with ready tasks. When I search for @ready tasks, I don't want to see Personal @ready tasks in that list. All my work projects are grouped under a "Work" project, so it should be possible to filter all @ready tasks under the "Work" project.

Workaround: create a @work label, and label all tasks in all work projects with the @work label. This is a lot more work, and redundant given that the project is a work project, and all tasks in that project are work tasks.

Alternative: Maybe we could apply labels to projects, so all tasks in that project inherit the label? (This would actually be pretty cool)
