Hi There,

Unfortunately at this time we do not support filtering with Projects. We hope to do so in the near future. Feel free to vote on this suggestion. http://todoist.com/Vote_iOS/showProposal/29/

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi guys,

Now that the p: project filter syntax has been added to the web client (and works brilliantly), I'm wondering what the plans are to introduce this to the iOS app?

It would be great if the filters I have on the web could work just as well (and consistently) on iOS too.

Phil.

I've also been waiting for this to work on iOS. For me, the app is not useful on my phone until this is fixed.

The link above to vote on the suggestion doesn't work. It shouldn't be a suggestion anyway - it is a bug that needs to be fixed.

Hey guys, it's been a while. Any news or ETA for this yet?

Hi Phil,

The project filter is coming with our major updates for iOS and Android very, very soon!

Wanted to follow up on this. I have been waiting for my filters which include a project filter to work on the iOS app. Now that we have v10, my filters with a project filter show no results. So was the feature not included in the V10 update?

Hi John,

Sorry about that! The project filter is included in the version 10 update. Could you please tell me the exact query you are using?

Regards,
Galina

I have a handful of filters, none of which are working on iOS here they are:

1) overdue & p:[w] & !@home, today & p:[w] & !@home & !@waitingon & !@delegated, today & p:[w] (@waitingon | @delegated), p2 & p:[w] & !@home & !@waitingon & !@delegated & !@gtm & !@admin & !@pm, p2 & p:[w] & @gtm, p2 & p:[w] & @admin, p2 & p:[w] & @pm

2) overdue & !p:[w] & !@home & !p:daily, today & !p:[w] & !@home & !p:daily, p2 & !p:[w] & !@home & !@waitingon & !@delegated & !@hold & !p:daily, today & p:daily

3) P1 & p:[w]

4) (overdue, 7 days) & P1 & -p:[W]

5) (overdue, 7 days) & p:[w]

6) p:[w] & @waitingon, p:[w] & @delegated, p:[w] & @hold

7) (overdue, 7 days) & !p:[w] & !p:daily

8) !p:[w] & @waitingon, !p:[w] & @delegated, !p:[w] & @hold

9) p4 & !p:[W] & !p:To Buy & !p:daily

10) overdue & !p:[w] & @home, today & !p:[w] & @home, p2 & !p:[w] & @home

John,

Could you please tell if in your query you actually use these square brackets [w], or you just put them here to indicate projects?

Galina

Yes, the query actually uses the brackets. I use the "[w]" appendix to my work projects (or a top level work project - on the web all sub projects are properly included in the search result) as a flag to delineate work from personal AORs

I see now. It may be the issue as we are trying to limit the number of supported special characters which cause problems when filtering. We may consider adding some characters in the next updates though.

To be sure, if you change one of the project titles (removing brackets), does the filter work?

Galina

So i should try removing the brackets from both the project names and filter?

Yes, please test it with one project and one filter. I am pretty sure this is the cause.

Ok, i removed the brackets around all the [w] projects, and tried removing the brackets in two filters (1 and 3 from above).

- Filter #1 (the most basic) now works on ios (P1 & p:w)

- Filter #3 (one of the more complex) does NOT work on iOS (
overdue & p:w & !@home, today & p:w & !@home & !@waitingon & !@delegated, today & p:w (@waitingon | @delegated), p2 & p:w & !@home & !@waitingon & !@delegated & !@gtm & !@admin & !@pm, p2 & p:w & @gtm, p2 & p:w & @admin, p2 & p:w & @pm)

The other issue, is now that i just have a "w" in the filter i am picking up other projects i didnt mean to. Are there some special characters that will work?

Such a long query :-)

Could you please check it carefully as there are some missing symbols:

- a single bracket in the end
- no symbol between p:w (@waitingon | @delegated)

Unfortunately, right now we are not supporting any special characters in the project and label names (in iOS). We will prepare the limited list of characters to implement in the future updates. I will include [ ] as your request too.

For now, I would suggest you give unique names to each project, or at least w1, w2, etc.

Galina

Thanks. however, i dont follow your comments.

- i dont see where i need to add a single bracket at the end
- i dont see any symbol between p:w (@waitingon | @delegated)

John,

I mean there is a single bracket in the end of your query (please see your previous post). Probably it's just a typo. Otherwise, you should remove it :-)

In this part p:w (@waitingon | @delegated) the symbol is missing. I guess, it should be p:w & (@waitingon | @delegated)?

Galina
