Search is missing today's competed tasks

P

Hi David,

I have found another bug related to search (the previous bug has been fixed as a part of https://todoist.com/Support/showQuestion/2199/).

I had an active task 'DRQS 33399376: Update log files paths' earlier today (August 29, 2012). I completed it. The task went to completed tasks (everything is as it should be). Then I'm trying to find all tasks having 'update' as a part of their names using 'q: update' query. The results do not contain 'DRQS 33399376: Update log files paths', even though it should appear in the 'completed' section of the 'q: update' results. It looks like the newly completed tasks do not get properly indexed or something. Please fix.

Thanks,
pxm255

Hello Pxm255,

indeed, there still seems to be an issue with the in-task query. I've forwarded it to the developers again. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

Is there any news about the search in completed tasks? It is still not working and it has been more that a month since your response. Please comment.

Thanks,

Hi David,

Thanks for getting back to me. I can find some of my completed tasks, but not all of them.

For example, I have a task completed on March 26, 2012 called 'Buy jeans'. When I'm trying 'q: jeans', unfortunately, nothing is found. Same situation with a task 'Read the Scalability and Stability presentation' (completed on March 27, 2012) when I'm searching for 'q: presentation'. I've tried searching for some other old tasks and they cannot be found either.

I tried to search for 'q: socks' with a more recent task 'Buy socks' (completed on June 30, 2012), but it wasn't found.

I suspect that there may be an issues with old tasks, but June 30 is not that old. I would want to be able to search all tasks I completed, not just a subset of the recent ones.

Thanks,
pxm255

Pxm255,

thank you for the information. I've indeed been able to still reproduce this issue with some tasks completed in the past and have passed it to the developers.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

I've cleared the cache and re-logged in to make sure I'm working in Todoist v72, but, unfortunately, I'm experiencing the same problems that described in the comment above:
https://todoist.com/Support/showQuestion/2434/#comment_7678

I cannot find any old completed tasks (even 1 month old ones). Please continue fixing.

Thanks,
pxm255

Hi David,

Thank you for getting back about this issue. The search has become much better - I can now find the tasks that I mentioned in the previous posts. However, I have still been able to locate a couple of tasks that cannot be found.

For example, I cannot find the task completed on October 10, 2012 named "Clean the Logitech Z-2300 speakers' grids (try to eliminate smoke smell)". Another, more recent, task (completed on November 7, 2012) is 'Book a taxi'. I have tried several key words for these tasks, but they are not shown in the results.

It seems there is still something that makes some completed tasks unsearchable.

Thanks,
pxm255
