Filter Excluding label

DS

Hi

This works:

today & !@personal

But this returns no results, even though there are tasks with this label:

!@personal

It actually says:
-@personal
No tasks matches your query

Hello David,

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this issue, this query seems to work correctly and shows tasks that are due today, but do not have the specified label.

Please tell me:
- What browser are you using?
- Is @personal the label you're looking for or are you searching for other labels and if so - does the label you search for have any special characters in its name?


Best regards,
David

Hi David

The label is just @Personal and works fine when filtering on the label

I reported slightly incorrectly the 7days & !@Personal doesn't work either; it just lists the days with no tasks, so I'm afraid that was misleading.

I just looked again and I realised I had projects defined which do not have the @Personal tag - but there were no tasks in the projects.

So I guess what I just learned is that filtering only works on tasks, not projects

David,

Indeed, you can only use filters with dates, priorities and labels, not project names, but we'll consider adding such option in the future.


Best regards,
David
