Filter with today's tasks + overdue and no date for multiple labels

I'm trying to set a filter with tasks that are due today, overdue or doesn't have a due date. I only want to show tasks with the labels @work and @errands, but this doesn't seem to work.

I get ALL tasks that are due today or overdue regardless of label. The "no date" query on the other hand is working correctly and I only get tasks for the chosen labels.

The query I'm using is:

(today,overdue,no date) & (@work | @errands)


What am I doing wrong? Is this kind of filter even possible?

Thanks!

//Fredrik

Hello Fredrik,

Please try to use:

today & (@work | @errands), overdue & (@work | @errands), no date & (@work | @errands)

Tnx, but that didn't work.. I'm only getting a text saying:

Tasks with no due date & @work | @errands
No tasks matches your query

Fredrik,

In that case, please try this one:

(tod & @work) | (tod & @errands), (od & @work) | (od & @errands), (no date & @work) | (no date & @errands)


Best regards,
David

Fredrik,

I've tested the last query and it works fine in Chrome and Firefox. Please tell me - what browser are you using and can you reproduce this in Chrome or Firefox?


Best regards,
David

Hi again,

I don't know why it didn't work the first time, but now everything is OK and the filter is working fine. :-D (+1)


Maybe you should include examples like this in your FAQ regarding filters?

Thanks!
