Filter person


Hello, good day!

How do I add a filter to filter the tasks only a certain person?

Thank you!

Hello Allan,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to search for tasks assigned only to one person, but you could try to include this in your queries:

:all: & !:to_me:

This will show all tasks assigned to everyone (or unassigned), but not assigned to you.

Best regards,

Ok, thx David!

What is the chance to implement such a feature? This is very important for my business.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Allan,

Though we're not working on implementing such a feature, we'll look into adding it in the future. It's not going to be anytime soon though if ever we do push through with implementing it.

Many thanks Clyde!

This functionality is very important for anyone who manages many projects with many people involved.

I agree - we are on the trial now and I think this could be a deal breaker - I'm the owner of our company and I need to see how much is assigned to each person on our team, not just myself vs everyone else

Excellent Ryan! I miss such a feature to manage a large team with a relatively high flow of work. Today I can not predict everything that attaches to a person, and whether I can put more tasks to that person.

ps: sry my english! I am using a translator. ;)

I was looking for such a function too.
As already said, it would help a lot knowing the work load on each person!

Yeah it is a must - is there any suggestions someone has for organizing employees tasks somehow? Otherwise it is going to be a mess of 300 to-do's in our team inbox. I thought about not using the assign to person at all and just putting projects into individual folders / projects for every employee. Then the team inbox would be not assigned. Would this work?

Eu faço assim! Crio pastas de projetos e vou atribuindo as tarefas lá dentro. Mas mesmo assim fica complicado saber o que cada um tem pra fazer com um número grande de projetos. =(

You need to be able to filter tasks per person.

This gives an overview of all tasks assigned to one person, this can be printed or referred to for work in progress purposes.

If you have many people to deal with, it would seem to be the only way.

No doubt! When you have a lot of people and projects is infeasible to know what each has to do ;(

Hopefully implement this functionality! hehe

Agreed, I'm very surprised that this is not supported. It makes it much harder to use something like this for a larger project or a larger team

Agreed. This is an important feature.

What is the possibility to implement this Todoist?

This is something I could use. It is essential if you are going to manage a team properly.

Would need to use it too. We are a team of 30 people with 8 project leaders who would need it ! : )

+1, i would love to see this, too. it's one of the reasons I have NOT gotten my team on a business plan. I manage a team, and I need to see who has been assigned what to follow up.

By seeing how many people who wants this feature, I just don't understand why you're not doing it.
I don't think that would take that long.

I've been using todoist a lot and I love it. I also really appreciate the very quick answers from the support team.

However, I'm often upset by answers like "no, you can't do this but you can do that" and it ends up being something totally different...as if we were stupid enough to take it and leave it...

If we ask for something it's because we to do it, not something else...

What? No filtering by assigned person? How can you manage multiple teams with multiple project managers if you can't filter per person assigned?

Indeed, I also think this is a must!

There isn't any update on this filter feature, but we read every post and the more users there are asking for a new feature the greater the chance of it getting implemented so keep posting here! And thanks to all for the feedback.
