And another query that doesnt work as expected:-

(today, overdue, priority 1) @work

Whereas the following works fine

(today, overdue) @work

Please refer below for the answer to your two questions.

1. (overdue, today, p1) & !Personal
This will not work since "!Personal" is not a valid query to hide the "Personal" project. Unfortunately, searching/excluding for projects is not currently supported right now.

2. (today, overdue, priority 1) @work
Please use "@work & (p1 | tod | od)" instead, without the double quotes. I tested it and it should give you the result that you are looking for.

Best Regards,

We don't have an ETA at this time. You can add this as a feature request in the vote box here https://todoist.com/Vote/. The votebox lets other Todoist users vote for ideas that they like.

Got a premium test account for the business to try out filters and labels that are not available in the free version. But since we cannot filter on projects the whole idea falls.
We will not be a paying customer until such a basic feature is implemented.

And since I see in the forum that this have been a request for at least a year without reaction from todoist, I guess we will keep out for quite a while.
