Is there a way to have my default page list all tasks, not just today's or tomorrow's or over due?

Hi Kim,

Yes you can do this by following the steps below:

1. On the upper right corner, you should see a gear icon (settings)
2. Select "Todoist Settings" (It's the first option)
3. In the "General" tab, one of the options there would be "Start page:"
4. Select "custom query" and edit it
5. Use "view all" as your query (don't include the double quotes)

That's it. If done properly, you have view all tasks as your start page not just the ones that are due. :-)

Regards,

Clyde

Hi Clyde, I followed your instructions and did create the "view all" leaving off the double quotes. When I go back to the main menu I do not see view all, only Inbox, Today and Next 7 days. Also, I would like to be able to view all leaving off archived & deleted. Thanks, Kim

Hi Kim,

The "start page" is default page that shows up when you first launch Todoist. It does not, however add another button. This is a misunderstanding on my part what you were trying to accomplish.

Now that I understand fully what you're trying to do, I believe what we need is a custom filter. This, again, does not add another button to view all tasks but allows us to create custom queries which is just 2 clicks away.

To do that, you can go to the filter tab and add a new filter and use "view all" as a query. This will be available to you along with other standard filters.

Another quick way to view all tasks is by searching "view all" at the top of the page ("Filter Tasks"). This will give you the result that you are looking for.

Unfortunately, the exact feature that you are looking does not exist yet. You can submit a feature request here https://todoist.com/Vote/.

Again, sorry for the confusion.

Regards,

Clyde
