filters not working in iOS

IS

I have a few custom filters set up in Todoist -- for example, "shopping today" (which, despite the title, includes @shopping items that are overdue, due today, or due within 7 days). The filters work fine on my Mac, but they are totally ignored on my iPhone (iOS 7.1, iphone 5S).

Obviously, the iphone is where I need filters like my shopping filter the most. Please advise.

Hi Ione,

Can you let me know the exact syntax used, what is exactly written in the filter area. As well as if you created this on web, or through the filter menu on iOS (though I assume Web)?

Regards,
Brendon.

I'm not talking about just one filter -- none of the custom filters work on the iphone, although they do work on the Mac. I created them on the Mac, in the Mac's Todoist app (I suppose that's essentially the same as on the web). The filters appear on the phone's filter menu, but nothing happens when I select them -- I still see everything due rather than just the filtered items due.

I only mentioned the shopping one as a convenient example of a filter that I really NEED on the phone.

The syntax for the shopping filter is

(overdue, 7 days) @shopping

P.S. -- as a test, I created a new filter directly in the ios app. I labeled it "ios shopping", and used the very same syntax as my regular shopping filter. And I get the very same result -- the filter works on the Mac, but it doesn't work on the phone.

Ione,

Please make sure you are updated to the latest app version, though I have passed this to the developer to see if we can find the cause.

Regards,
Brendon.
