Todoist Outlook App - Filter Projects

SB

Is it possible to filter projects within the Todoist Outlook app? I'd like to be able to see current and upcoming tasks for only work-related projects, and hide items such as kids activities.

Hello Steve,

In general, it's not possible to include project names in search queries (we may add such option in the future, though - you can vote for it here: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/49/ ), but you can choose a project just as you can in the web-app. To do so, simply click on the "Show project" link at the top and select any project you'd like to work on.


Best regards,
David

Thanks for the information. However, that still puts me in a bind as I want to be able to see my "Office Tasks Today" view which will include more than one project.

I put the various work projects under a single "Work" top-level project but that won't work either (it doesn't show anything).

Steve,

There are three alternative options:

1. Use labels to mark tasks @work or @home and include these labels in search queries.

2. If you don't want to see tasks from other project or project groups, archive them temporarily. Right-click on a project, choose "Archive" and it will be hidden. You can unarchive projects anytime.

3. Use two Todoist accounts - one strictly for work, one only for home.


Best regards,
David
