Filter by project


I can't find a way to filter by project. I'd like to have all tasks pertaining to a certain project due today in front of me but i cant seem to formulate such a query.

All responses

Hi Tsvi,

There is no way to filter by project at this time. http://todoist.com/Vote/show/5952/

Hi Brendon,

When will you guys introduce this feature? This is what you write on your website:

"Create custom filters that fit your workflow."

Well, many people need to be able to filter by project in workflow. This is a basic thing.

Thanks Brendon

Absolutely, Kind of makes me regret plunking down the premium $

This is super critical to have if you are managing many projects with many tasks.

Very important feature!!

I totally agree that this is a very important feature -- as a workaround, I have my key projects as labels also, and then have to remember that label to every item in the project, which is kind of idiotic . . .

But not actually here to complain, just to say that I hope everyone complaining here has voted at


I think the voting is more important than the complaining, or if we want to complain, there is the more effective platform.

This is very important for me as well. I don't want to have to manually tag every task as a workaround. I moved to todoist primarily for the project and sub-project support.

This needs to be added. I have no way to sort work and personal projects. :'-( :'-(

Ditto one more request for this feature from a paying user. In particular, I'd find it especially useful to filter *out* projects.

Agreed this feature is critical.. frankly amazed it is not available. The tool is much less useful without it.

This and another thread has been going for awhile. I hope management is
listening. This should not be something voted for. It is essential. Like
selling a car without the good and forcing us to vote on it. Fix it. Not
renewing and using Informant 4.0 as a result.

The voting system seems to have closed down. I put the money on premium thinking it'd be part of premium... it wasn't. I'd also love a start date as well as due date, but that's a different thread. I hope they can augment the saved search (filter) capability soon, to be on par with competitors toodledo, rtm, etc.

Definitely need this to be able to look only at Work-related tasks (based on projects) while I am at work and only at Home-related tasks while I am at home. Tagging everything makes no sense.

I'm considering cancelling my Todoist premium if this feature will be added soon :/ Love the service but this is a cruical feature that is important, unfortunately.

I started using todoist, but went back to workflowy because I can do filtered searches much more easily.

I think all we need is just to be able to search:

This shouldn't be too hard to implement. As it stands, the concept of projects in todoist is largely cosmetic.

So another +1 for this.

I really need this function ...

Now I need to use labels on each task naming them with the name of the project ...

I'm wasting a lot of time, which is really bad, because one of the goals of todoist is to save time ...

Can't believe this isn't here! I need to filter on project! When is this coming?

Agree with everything on here, should be able to filter using #project_name

I don't know much, but #project_name seems like not to insanely huge of a lift...

adding my voice to this as another paying user. This is an essential feature.

Can management/support please respond with an indicative timeframe or at the very least a sense that we have been heard?

(Currently all we have a a simple no this doesn't work. Not good enough, really).

Quiting the service because of this feature and because no answer at all from staff

+1 on this feature. Great app by the way. This far and above blows everything I've used away. I love how much you support the "todo list" everywhere philosophy. It is so great to just add things to my inbox in outlook, on a widget on my phone, in a add-on in my browser.

This would be a great edition, especially to filter just my work projects that are due today.

It is interesting to see the new feature of location-dependent reminders. Cool. And perhaps useful for things like shopping tasks. But most of the time I personally don't need reminders, I need to be able to work through my to-do list not based on where I am but what I am focussed on (work of "play"). Some days I work from the office, other days I work from my home office or even from a coffee shop. The feature requested here would let me deal with that, a location-based reminder wouldn't.

Really, when is management going to introduce this feature. Thoroughly regretting my premium membership right now. This is as basic as it gets. Please fix this...
