Viewing all Todoist task entries

BW

When I enter a task for a future date or change a current dated task to a follow-up task to a date in the future, the entry disappears and I haven't discovered how I can search for and reveal all tasks entered into the system, irrespective of date.

Hi Bob,

Please clarify, you search for these tasks (top of Todoist, where overdue, today are shown) and you can't find them? You go into the Project they were added, and they are not there?

Regards,
Brendon.

I'm not using the Projects feature. I'm building Task To Dos and adding notes to each as part of the process. Example, I spoke to someone this morning and they said that they would be ready to do something end of February, so I changed the due date in the task to end of February. It dissappeared and I can't find a way to expose it and all open and dated tasks in the system.

Hello Bob,

If you haven't set up any projects, then all your tasks must be in the "Inbox" project. Please access it and see if they're there.

You can also search for any specific date by typing it into the search bar at the top. Try to type 28 Feb there and see if it shows up.


Best regards,
David

Thanks David. That's precisely where they are.

Is that the only way to see all tasks, regardless of if they're assigned a project or not or have a date or not? I want to see all open tasks as a default. Is there a way to do that?

Jason,

You can use "view all" into the search box to view all tasks.

That worked, thanks! But it seems like it should be easier, or at least a setting you could enable by default.

Jason, you can always set up a filter using the same "view all" syntax. Then it's one click to see the complete list, separated by project. I have a filter called "Everything" that is set up exactly that way.
Does that help?

It does, great idea!

But don't you think it should be a default view choice? :)

For me. it would be overwhelming as the default - I find that I'm better off with a focused list of the things which are important to me right now, and another view for the near future. I only use my "Everything" filter very occasionally.
However, I think it would be a great feature if a user could determine for themselves which of the views (either built-in or custom-built filters) should be part of their default sets, for sure.
