Filtering tasks by project name

J

Is there a way to filter tasks by a project name (and/or its subprojects) plus by a date ? e.g. when I have a couple of projects at work and some private etc. and I want to see /print what are todays / older tasks but only within my work projects so that I do not have to dig through a very long list of current tasks and handpick those related to work ?

Hi Jacek,

You can create filters for projects now. Just use p:projectname within the filter to do so. Let me know if you need any more explanation.

Thanks a lot for the reply,
the filtering works - i didin't notice this option before (if might be worth including an info in the instructions page on filtering), there is one "but" however - unlike when displaying by a project, when filtering by a project only the designated project is included - without subprojects - is there a way to include also subprojects in filtering (obviously apart form naming them all in filter definition) ?

Best regards,
Jacek

Hi Jacek,

Sadly, the filtering doesn't work on the sub-projects of that project. For now, you can use the workaround where you can put a keyword such [work] before or after your project names. That way, you can just filter for "work" and it will return you all the project that has "work" in it's name.

Hi Clyde,

That's a pity. I'm currently using similar method and tag my work tasks with @work but this is somehow superfluous as they go into my #Work projects anyway - and there is always the risk of ommiting the tag while enterring the task - and thus loosing the item on GTD "next work actions" list .
But thanks for help anyway.

Regards,
Jacek
