search syntax for project filtering

BI

Hi Todoist,

I love how you embed the search syntax into the URL so that we can save bookmarks that correspond to complex queries. So far I can't seem to figure out how to filter based on project though?

i.e. for work:

"today !Personal"

or for outside of work:

"today Personal"

How do I do this?

Hi Ben,

Unfortunately, at the moment our search does not allow the filtering of projects with another syntax. You can filter by priority, label, name. Full details can be found here : https://todoist.com/Help/timeQuery

You can of course quickly switch to a project by typing in "#" which allows you to quickly select the project.

Thanks,
Brendon.

search by project is exactly what I need :(

I have all my home tasks in the home project. If I am at work I don't want all those showing and don't want to have to add @home to every home task.. they are already at home because they are in the home project :(

Hi brendon,

Will filtering by project be available in the future?

Yes, we do plan on implementing it in the future.

Just got on here to see if this was added in Todoist Next, but I guess not. Hopefully soon!

Yes, this is the single biggest factor for me, in determining which task service to use. :(

Why i can't set filter like: "7 days @deadline #Work" ?!
I need this feature too.

I definitely need this feature. I use ToDoIst for home life, graduate school, and work now, so it's essential that I'm able to, say, filter just today and overdue for work (which I have as a project) so I don't get completely overwhelmed. Thanks!

I like Denis's proposed implementation... just checking if this is in Todoist's roadmap?

Hello Dave,

It's something we're considering to implement, through we can't say in what form at this point, but we're look into making it possible to search or filter search results by project.


Best regards,
David

Best news I have heard all day! My Premium subscription is up in about a month and I just can't make Todoist my main task manager without the ability to filter by projects. Thanks for the reply!
