Allow search of custom filter name in query box



I love the ability to rapidly use Todoist for Windows almost exclusively with the keyboard for adding tasks and performing quick searches.

I have a request for what I think is a new feature, one that you could add as premium only.

I have created several custom filters that I would like quick access to via the query box. As an example:

Filter name: YTT (could be anything)
Filter command: yesterday, today, tomorrow
Filter action: Display all tasks due yesterday, today and tomorrow

I would love to be able to quickly jump to this custom filter by typing YTT in the query box. You can do this with labels via the @ prefix, and projects via the # prefix. So why not allow this for custom filter names also.

Right now, the only way is to click through the left hand menu which just slows me down.

Even something like $YTT or %YTT would be great.

Hi Adriaan,

Thank you for your suggestion. Can you post this in the Votebox section https://todoist.com/Vote/ so other users can vote for it?

Please note that you can save custom filters so you can easily access them without retyping it in the query box. You can use this entry "yes,tod,tom" as a workaround for the meantime.

Best Regards,
