Labels on Assigned Tasks

JC

Tasks that have been assigned in the shared project, are not included in label filters? I would think that I should still be able to do a label filter to pick up all tasks with the filter. For example I have @name and @category as labels on a task - I also assigned the task to an individual. Now if I filter on either label - only unassigned tasks appear in the results.

I think this is a significant limitation in functionality. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Hello Jason,

That's the correct behavior. By default, all search results only show your own tasks (or unassigned tasks). When planning your work, you'll always see things you're responsible for and not others. The assigned person will see them on their list of course and you'll receive a notification once this person completed the task.

If you want to see all tasks, please include :all: in the search or custom filter, for example:

:all: & 7 days

:all: & @work


Best regards,
David

Thanks that works - any plans to :all: as a default option in settings?

Jason,

Right now, we're not planning it. Since Todoist's main goal is to make you productive, we chose to show just your tasks by default and let the assigned persons worry about their tasks. Of course you can always enter the project or use :all: to see everything.

Other users may actually not want to view assigned tasks on their lists so given that it seems like a matter of preference, we may consider making it an option and you're welcome to request it in our Votebox: https://todoist.com/Vote/


Best regards,
David

I share Jason's oppinion.
I do not see labeling as an opposite to assigning.
I would suggest the team to re-consider since this is not about losing self-productivity but about keeping track (in my oppinion).

Thanks,

Cristián
