Can I search using some of the words in my task.
For instance, if I use a person's name in the task, it would be helpful to be able to search using that name to see what other tasks are associated with the name. Thank you.
on a free Todoist account, you can attach a label to each task (with a person's name, for example) by adding @labelname within the task name and then search for this label by typing @labelname within the search box or by clicking on a particular label.
With Todoist Premium, you can also search for keywords within the task name without using labels. To do so, you could type "q: keyword" within the search box and you would see all task containing the word you were looking for.
Feel free to sign up for Todoist Premium and for less than $2.50/month, you would be able to use this and many more useful features incl. email/SMS reminders, task notes, full history of complete tasks or adding tasks via email.
