Filter out sub tasks

SS

I want to display recurring daily tasks with out the sub task showing up in the main list and under the main task. I only want to show the main tasks, and if they have sub tasks they are displayed under the main task only. see attached example.

Hello Scott,

That's unfortunately not possible now. We chose to show the data like this to make sure that you'll never miss a task, even if it's a sub-task, as long as it matches the search criteria (is due today).

At the same time, if one of the matching tasks is a parent task, we'd like to give you the option to expand it and check if it has other sub-tasks that require attention.

Removing any of these options would either risk not seeing sub-tasks due today unless you find them below the parent task or having parent tasks that aren't even due today on the list only because they have sub-tasks due today which you'd have to find manually.


Best regards,
David

No problem. I came up with my own filter that will work that way.

I labeled the sub tasks with @sub then created this filter to show my important tasks for the day. IT basically give you priority 1,2,or 3 tasks for today and filters out the sub tasks.

today & (p1 | p2 | p3) & !@sub
