How can I include "project" in filter criteria?


I want to filter tasks that meet certain criteria WITHIN a project. Is this possible?

Hi Luls,

Unfortunately, at this time it's not possible to add a Project to a search criteria. We hope to improve this in the future.

Feel free to vote on it :) http://todoist.com/Vote_iOS/showProposal/29/

I think it's important to prioritize higher the ability to query projects -- because when creating a to-do, Project is the #1 most prominent field (besides Content).

You have to click "More Options" to even see the Labels... and yet querying the labels is possible but not projects? It doesn't make intuitive sense.

Hello Josh,

Unfortunately not, but we'll look into adding such option in future updates.

Agreed that this would be really helpful. I am finding that my to-do list each day is way too chaotic, bordering on unusable unless I can figure out some alternatives.

This is a key piece of functionality that I use in remember the milk - would make it difficult to jump to todoist without this being in place. Surely its a straightforward piece of coding to enable a further piece of refinement in search functionality??

Look forward to the next update :-)

Yes please add this ASAP. Could I suggest that, as a way of avoiding ongoing requests for the same feature, you publish a prioritised upcoming features list and invite user input. It doesn't mean you have to commit to dates.

I know you have a suggestion box, but this doesn't indicate what YOUR priorities might be (which ultimately determines what gets implemented :-)

Hello all,

I've recently upgraded my account to Premium hoping to use features like this. As @georgekao well said, it's kind of counter intuitive a filter without project query option.

Please include this update as a priority for future updates and I, and many others, will not hesitate in recommending Todoist to friends and colleagues.

Thanks in advance!

I am set to renew my Premium account in the coming months. I am really happy with the development of Todoist and I am ready to transfer all of my tasks from RTM to Todoist. But Todoist can't become my main task manager without an option to filter by project. Please add this feature soon! Thanks.

just purchased premium to get useful lists. If filtering by projects is not available, this becomes rather useless...
