filters :to_others

Filter ":to_others" doesn't work properly.

Hello Cyril,

Please note that the correct syntax for this filter is:

:to_others:

That is - no quotation marks and two colons - one at the front and one at the end. Is that what you see in the search bar when using this filter?


Best regards,
David

I knew the good syntax and i actually hit the pre-set filter.

It still doesn't return all of the tasks that are assigned to others.

Cyril,

- If you delete, and re-create the filter, does it work?
- If you just search for that, does it work?

Does this only occur on the Mac App, or browsers as well?

Regards,
Brendon.

Brendon,

- If you delete, and re-create the filter, does it work?
---No

- If you just search for that, does it work?
---I search for a word in the task, and it works. (it is assigned to someone)
---then i press the filter :to_others: and the task doesn't appear

Does this only occur on the Mac App, or browsers as well?
---on mac app : doesn't work
---on web app : doesn't work
---on ios : ??? as you probably know, we can't search for task (yet) !!!

Best regards.

Hello Cyril,

We've found an issue that may cause this problem if the tasks has been created by someone else than you and assigned to someone else by the task creator. Is that the case?

I think it might be the case

Any news on this ? It's annoying.

Hello Cyril,

The :to_others: filter shows tasks that you have assigned to other people, not tasks that are assigned to others by others. For that, please use the :all: filter option.

We will modify the description on our help page to clarify that.


Best regards,
David

Thank you for your answer.
The :all: filter doesn't seem to do what i want.

What i want is to be able to see all the tasks that are assigned to someone else. Doesn't matter if i have assigned them or if they have been assigned by somebody else.

Cyril,

That's not possible right now, but we'll consider adding such option in the future. You're welcome to request it in our Votebox: https://todoist.com/Vote/

I created a votebox.

However, i'm not sure everybody will find it that useful.

I think it's pretty easy. create a filter called :others:

I'm managing a company and i find it interesting to check what's going on.

This would be so useful! I manage several companies as well and being able to see the tasks everyone has is key to management. I vote yes a billion times for this feature!

I think this feature will be useful as well. I faced the same problem today. Would really want a complete summary of all tasks assigned to others in the team without me having to create / assign every single task.

I was trying to create a filter
:to others: & 14 days

Shayan,

As mentioned by David, :to_others: actually shows you tasks YOU assigned to other users and not the tasks that are assigned to other users. Could this be why it's not showing you the correct tasks?

:to_others: works correctly. The issue I am getting is when I create a filter
:to_others: & 14 days

It shows no results, even for tasks that I created and assigned to other people.
I just created and assigned a task to someone for tomorrow.

It shows: No tasks matches your query `:to_others: & 14 days`.
