Using one account for both personal and work projects and tasks


I love todoist (even more now that there's a native android app in beta).

It is difficult, however, to use it for both personal and work. I would like to get a 'va' or '7 days, overdue' list for just my work or just my personal tasks. I can use labels (@w and @p), but then I have to add them to each task individually (painful). I keep everything in projects (3 projects for home and 7 for work), but there is no apparent way to query on project.

Ideally what would be nice would be to be able to attach a tag to a project so that any task created there would be auto tagged with that. Then all of my work projects would be auto-tagged with @w and the same with @personal.

It would be great if you could add the suggestion in the previous paragraph or let me know some way to address it through existing features.

Hello David,

unfortunately, it's not possible to add labels to projects, but thank you for the suggestion, we appreciate your feedback and will consider adding such option in the future. You're welcome to add your vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/43/

For now, the only alternative to separate these tasks (without labeling them) is by using two Todoist accounts.

Best regards,
