How to set the start page with (overdue, today) plus "no date"?

Hi, I would like to see all pending tasks altogether when I first open Todoist. Is there a way to do it?
I tried setting the start query with "(overdue, today) no date", but I am not sure if it is the right syntax. Plus in "no date“, it does not show sub-tasks, which I would also like to see in the start page.

Hello Yuliang,

Please try to use the formula: "(overdue, today) & no date" or "overdue, today, no date".

Sub-tasks are shown in all date-based views, but not with their indent level. That is - these queries display any task that meets the criteria and shows it on a "flat" list to make sure that no other tasks (parent tasks) that don't meet the criteria are displayed just so that the sub-tasks that do meet it are shown underneath.

If a task that meets the criteria is a parent task itself, then it will have an arrow icon to its left allowing you to expand its sub-tasks.

Best regards,
