Where can I view all tasks? 2nd request...
If you go under Filters, and click on View All, it will show you all tasks, grouped by project.I would like to know how to see all tasks, in due-date order -- not grouped by project, just in order of due-date. Anyone know how to do this?
Under filters, there is no "view all" option. I think I'm calling it quits with ToDoist. Thanks though!
Mark,That's weird! I can see a "View all" option under the "Filters" tab on all three platforms that I use ToDoist Premium -- Mac, iPad, aniPhone. I just purchased ToDoist and started using it yesterday, though, so you may have an earlier version that didn't have that feature. Is your software up-to-date? That's the only reason I can think of that you wouldn't see it, but I'm just another end-user, not a tech specialist! :)
Allison,With the latest version there is no "view all" filter. You would have to create it yourself, which you may have done in the past.You can create a filter or just search for "view all" to see all tasks.Regards,Brendon.
Brendon,Thanks for your reply. I am completely new to ToDoist, and have never created a filter before. Could you send me an email with steps to create a "view all" filter that would display all to do items in date order? Thanks!
Brendon,Also, there already is a "View all" filter that was present once I installed ToDoist; I did not create it. It has "view all" as the search term, and it works to return all items, but it groups them by project, and I'm not sure why it's doing that, as the filter does not seem to contain any commands that would cause that to happen. I want to get the same result, but not grouped by project, only ordered by date. How can I either edit the existing filter, or create a new filter to do that?
Hello Allison,Unfortunately, that's the only way the "View all" filter works, if will show you all tasks project by project and not mixed through projects and sorted by date.If you prefer date-based views, we recommend to add such filters as "30 days" or "100 days" which would group the tasks by day and time first, then by priority.Best regards,David
David,I set up a filter as you suggested, but used "365 days" as my query. Ot did return a list sorted by date, but did not include the one item I have that isn't scheduled during the couple of weeks. The due date on that item is Sept. 1, 2014.Is there a limit to how many days can be in the filter query?
Allison,There seems to be a limitation indeed, I'll pass it to the developers and will let you know what it is exactly.Best regards,David
I created a filter called "View All", then put "view all" as my search query and it brought everything up.
Thanks, Brad. I did this, too, but the problem is that all the items are not listed in date order, as I need them to be. Rather, they were divided by project, so it would show me all the items from one project, in date order, then all the items from the next project, in date order, etc. I can't figure out how to get a complete list of all items, in date order, regardless of the projects to which they are assigned. How do your "View All" results display?
David, did you ever find out what the maximum number of days can be in a filter? Thanks!
Allison, Not as of yet, sorry about that.Regards, Brendon
