filter tasks

How do I create a filter?
The parameters are:
The project - work

That is, I do not want to see all the tasks but only those that I have to do on this project today. How to set up and then maintain such a filter?

All responses

Hello Andrey,

Unfortunately, it's currently not possible to include project names in filters or search queries, but we're going to implement such option in future updates.

Best regards,

You should carefully go through the website and check it out for usability.
Very comfortable and not long to enter recurring dates, I must first learn the commands and then write them down. For example, "every first Saturday at 12:00" - as soon as you think you do it. By clicking a few buttons or writing? I understand that you have developed an interesting solution to enter the date for the task. But the decision has to be not only interesting but also a comfortable and intuitive. Without it, this decision only in order to show that it is.
Same with filters. Like all I have personal projects and work. I do not want the task of these projects were mixed up and distracted me.
Reminders are not too comfortable.
You have a few years ago was a calendar on the upper right. clicking on it you can see the problem on this day. It was super convenient.
I used to use http://www.leadertask.ru/ - very convenient and simple program.

My goal is not to offend you. I want to enjoy a nice and easy to use product. Please understand me correctly.

We're sorry to hear that. So far, the way we offer adding tasks with natural language has been considered as very intuitive during our user testing sessions and praised that you don't have to use complicated switches, multiple clicks and buttons, but simply type "every day" or "every monday" or any command that you would normally say.

Nonetheless, we'll try to improve our app in the future based on your feedback, however we always aim to keep it simple and easy to use and avoid complexity and cluttering the interface so that every function works as natural as possible and doesn't require filling out a form just to set up a simple task. But again - we appreciate your feedback and will try to make Todoist even easier and also add the option to include projects in the search box.

Best regards,
