iPhone Problem with Filters

SP

Hi --

I cannot get the iPhone app to do complex filters that include a label, 7 days, and overdue items. No matter how I order the items, it doesn't work.

Hello Susan,

Assuming that the name of the label would be "test", the correct formula you should type to the "query" filed (not the "name" field) would be:

7 days, od, @test

Please let me know if it works.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

Thanks for responding.

When I use your syntax, no items are found. When I use this syntax:

7 days @test

I get seven items, two of which do not have the label @test (which in my actual filter is @now), but have another label (@work) instead.

Susan,

Just to clarify, if you type the same syntax that I've mentioned earlier on the web-app, does it return any results? Note - this query should display tasks that are due within the next 7 days AND have this label and also tasks that are overdue AND have this label. Do you have tasks that meet these conditions (label + 7 days OR label + overdue)?


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

In the web app, your syntax produces several results, all with the label @now, none with any other label, and some that are overdue. (I do have tasks that meet both label + 7 days and label + overdue.)

Thanks,

Susan

In case I wasn't clear, by web app I mean when I access Todoist using a browser on a laptop or desktop computer.
