Filter within a project
I am wondering if it is possible to filter tasks within a project? As far as I can see I can't do that?
Let's say I have a project called "Project X", and certain tasks in the project are labeled "urgent". I would like to be able to filter Project X for tasks labeled urgent.
My workaround is to create a label corresponding to the project name, and then manually label every single task in that project with that label, and then filter on "@ProjectX & @urgent". This seems tedious.
Is there a better way, that I haven't seen?
Sadly, at this time there is no way to include a project within a filter, though we will consider adding this ability in future updates.
I see, thanks for response. Then there is not really any point using projects then I guess - I can just as well just use a project tag for each project since I have to have that anyway in order to be able to filter my tasks appropriately.
Follow up question: is it possible to add a label to many tasks at once, instead of doing it one by one? In that way I could easily add a project-label to all tasks in a certain project.
Not at this time but it could get added in the near future.
Agreed we really do need ability to filter by Project or as was said earlier, not much point in using Projects.
I typically use 2 Projects
Inbox - Dump Ground until I properly file the task
I would love to be able to filter all Urgent Business tasks for example.
Also because I use Todoist for business & personal, when I'm at work I don't want others peering over my shoulder at my Personal Tasks, so I just display Business Project. But then as we know, we have no filters on this.
I'm seriously missing the ability to filter by project AND tag simultaneously. It would also be nice to be able to sort a list based on the associated tags.
Just have a look at Toodledo.com they have a lot of functionality I would love to see in Todoist. I'm hopeful that Todoist will keep improving. Otherwise I might have to move back... :-S
+1 for project based filters.
"Today & #ProjectName" would be very helpful.
