Filter option "a due date"

Is it possible to create a filter which shows all tasks that have some kind of due date?

Hi Otto,

Can you please explain further, what do you mean by some kind of date? You can search for a specific date if you'd like, just by entering the exact date.

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi Brendon,

By that I mean all tasks that have a due date. The opposite of filter "no due date".

Hello Otto,

Technically, it's possible but not directly. That is - you can't use a specific filter that will display all tasks with any due date, but if you search for "7 days" or "30 days", then you will see all tasks that have a due date within this timeframe.


Best regards,

"30 days" does not work - it thinks of it as text.

The maximum that gets picked up as a range of days is "19 days" - 20 is "not found"

Hello Andrew,

i can't reproduce this "20 days" as well as "30 days" both work fine. We've had an issue similar to what you've described where it stopped working after exactly 19 days, but it's been fixed last year.

That said, please try to log out, clear your browser's cache, reload the browser and log back in making sure that you're going directly to https://todoist.com and not a bookmark that may contain a very old version number.


Best regards,
David

I'm in Chrome, if that helps

Andrew,

Please go to Chrome's Advanced Settings -> Content Settings -> ALl cookies and site data, search for Todoist, delete all Todoist-based entries on this list, reload the browser and then log into Todoist making sure that you type exactly https://todoist.com into the bar and Chrome doesn't suggest a different URL to you.

I still can't reproduce this in Chrome, I suspect that it's a caching issue.


Best regards,
David

Andrew,

Please tell me - do you actually have tasks that are due within more than 19 days? I've tried once again and it always works - 19 days returns results, 20 days works too, same goes for 30 days. I've tried it on Windows 8.1, Chrome version 33.0.1750.154 m.

Please let me know what Chrome version and OS are you using and in what language are you using Todoist.


Best regards,
David

Yes,

When I say "7 days" it gives the result "Today .. Yesterday.." etc up to
"Sunday"

When I say "30 days" it says No tasks matches your query `30 days`.

Chrome 33.0.1750.154 m Windows 7

Andrew,

I've tried it yet again, typed in just "30 days" (without the quotation marks, of course) and it shown me tasks due within the next 30 days.

You are using Todoist in English, correct?

If you have a different browser installed or wouldn't mind installing one for testing, please do so and let me know if the issue persists there. So far I've tried the same query in Firefox, Chrome and even IE 11 and it works in all of them. :-!


Best regards,
David

FYI - I just tried "30 days" and it worked in Outlook, in Chrome, and in IE11.

Outlook?

David Trey staff

Andrew,

Zane was referring to our Outlook plugin, which actually also uses Chrome's engine.

I still can't reproduce it. You could try one more thing - Chrome's Incognito Window (Ctrl+Shift+N) and let me know if it works there.


Best regards,
David

ooh.. works in Incognito!
and.. actually.. now it's working in Chrome also

I feel foolish, but I know it was NOT working. Maybe one of the steps he
suggested did work, but didn't work right away?

Regardless, thank you for all your insistent help!

Hey, I was also looking for that option but I think it's possible directly..

Am still testing..

Try

"!no due date" // Without quotes

It works....
