Project search

HL

Hi David,

I am Hank. May I ask you a question about project.
How could I search the project that I have 83 projects(more and more)? If I use my eyes to scan this projects, it will be slow.

Please help me know how to do it.

Thanks!

Hello Hank,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to search for project names, but you can search for a task name using the q: query. For example, if you type:

q: calls

you will see all tasks with the ward "calls" in them across all projects.


Best regards,
David

Hank,

Usually projects are used as folders and since you can create tasks, sub-tasks and labels, most of the time, there should be no need for more than 20 projects. We may of course consider adding such option in the future and you're welcome to add a request to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/ but also - to better understand how you're using Todoist, we would appreciate if you could describe how you're managing your tasks that you need an 80+ project structure. How many tasks do you have within each of these projects?


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

Thank you for reminder me that I should try to better understand how I am using Todoist. Today I finally figure out how to use the project on my work. I can use only 10+ projects. And Fixed my problem.

thank you for help! I love to use Todoist. It's awesome !

10 projects won't do - i have 200 that i'm migrating with 5000 tasks and expect this to grow significantly.


Searching projects is useful functionality and trivial to implement. i hope you'll do so soon. Voting now.
