Can I search using some of the words in my task.


For instance, if I use a person's name in the task, it would be helpful to be able to search using that name to see what other tasks are associated with the name. Thank you.

Hello Michael,

on a free Todoist account, you can attach a label to each task (with a person's name, for example) by adding @labelname within the task name and then search for this label by typing @labelname within the search box or by clicking on a particular label.

With Todoist Premium, you can also search for keywords within the task name without using labels. To do so, you could type "q: keyword" within the search box and you would see all task containing the word you were looking for.

Feel free to sign up for Todoist Premium and for less than $2.50/month, you would be able to use this and many more useful features incl. email/SMS reminders, task notes, full history of complete tasks or adding tasks via email.

Best regards,
