Filtering

I'm trying to get a filter working on the iphone, android and outlook that will allow me to see all of today's and overdue tasks that are labelled as Work.

I've been trying

(today, overdue) & @work

and also

(today, overdue) @work

but they don't seem to behave the way I'm expecting I get a list of today's tasks for all labels followed by a list of tasks labeled as Work for any day.

Is it not possible to filter the today/overdue list by a label?

Thanks
Mark

Hello Mark,

Unfortunately, some advanced filters don't work correctly on the iOS app. We're looking into this issue and we'll address it in the next updates. Sorry for the inconvenience.

As for the remaining platforms, please try this query:

(today & @work) | (overdue & @work)

or

(today & @work), (overdue & @work)

and let me know if they work.


Best regards,
David

This works as expected in the web browser version but not in the other apps.

(today, overdue) @work

Thanks for the suggestion, in outlook I'm getting a list for Today showing everything, then a list showing @work followed by a Yesterday list followed by the same @work list again.

The @work list shows the same items and includes items for next week.

Hopefully we can get this working as this is why I upgraded to Premium... to allow filtering on labels.

Mark,

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this issue in the Outlook plugin.

Using

(today, overdue) & @work

shows me all tasks that are either due today with the label @work or overdue with the label @work.

Please tell me:
- When exactly did you download out Outlook plugin (we've posted an update in the past 2 weeks)?
- What version of Outlook are you using?
- What version of Internet Explorer is installed on your PC (the Outlook plugin uses IE to connect)?


Best regards,
David

Hi David

I downloaded the plug in this morning.

I am using Outlook 2010 and IE 8 (Chrome is my browser of choice these days so rarely used IE) .... I'm upgrading to IE 11 to see if this solves the issue.

(today, overdue) & @work works in Chrome but not IE 8 so it seems that the IE version is the issue, will let you know when IE 11 has finished installing.

As for iOS 6 I still can't get the filters to work as they should even after trying your suggestion :-(

Mark,

Unfortunately, the iOS app doesn't fully support advanced queries yet, but we'll add it soon. However, even when we do, this will only be available in our iOS 7 app, we no longer support the iOS 6 version.


Best regards,
David
