1. Can we see a complete task list without project breakdown?
2. Can we add tasks without allocating it to a specific project?
3. Why is there a "competed" link on the top right corner but there isnt an "active" link on the top right corner? I suggest you add an active link. :) ty
Also, the Active items button (search function q: ) comes back with:
No tasks found
but I have a lot tasks

1. Unfortunately, it's not possible to see a list of all tasks across all projects, but without the headers showing each project (as the "viewall" or "va" query does).
2. It's not possible to add a task on Todoist without putting it into any project. If you have unrelated tasks, you could create a project called "Inbox" and add all new tasks there.
3. Please clarify - what tasks would you like to see as "active"? Tasks with a certain date, with no date, all tasks? You can view all tasks by typing "va" or "viewall" to the search box.
Regarding the "q: " function, it allows you to search for a word within tasks name. For example, if you search for "q: buy", you will see all tasks which contain the word "buy".
Reg. your answer to point 3 - the "Completed" list is actually a date list. Tasks listed there are grouped by the day they were completed.
You can type "30 days" to the search box to see all tasks across projects grouped by their due date. If you search for "no date", you'll see tasks without a due date (also across all projects).
Nonetheless, we will consider adding a "viewall" view without project grouping in the future and you're welcome to add a request to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/
Reg. question 4 - that's not possible. You can import/export task sets and add all tasks at one to a project as shown in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Rl_CLGY_3o
If you want to add a single task to multiple project, we recommend reconsidering using projects in this case. If you add a certain label to a task, for example - by typing @phonecalls within the task name, you can search for this label and see all tasks that have the same label. In some cases labeling tasks may be better to manage tasks. Also, you could try to create a project instead of this one task and add other tasks to it, depending on how you manage your tasks.
