Is there a complete list of search operators for complex search queries? (operators and uses)

I beleive the search box to be a key development. most of the issues and requests are related to finding or listing desired tasks. If you would just publish a file with all search operators avilable we some how could build our own searches. Moreover, if you would open an advanced search box and let us know what database system (and query systax) are you using, so some of us would study it a bit then build our custom powerful searches..

But for now.. a complete pdf list of all operators avilable would be awesome.

Hello Eduardo,

We're explaining the search option on our help page here: https://todoist.com/Help/filters

Basically, there are 3 operators you can use: &, !, | (and, not, or), you can chain queries with parenthesis () and use q: to force a text search.

Please refer to the examples shown on the page above and if you have any specific questions about it, please let us know.


Best regards,
David
