Filter for showing first task of several projects


is it possible to create a filter to show the first task of the rest (or maybe part) of projects?

Considering how easy is to reorder tasks, it would awesome to have in a view the next task of every project.

Hi Marcos,

So you'd like to see the next task (in terms of due date) of each project in its own view? Well in the way you describe this, no it's not possible. Yet, you can just search for how many days you want, like the 7 Days view, you can type 4 days, or 30 days and see all the upcoming tasks.

thanks for the quick response.

Well, I didn't mean in terms of due date. Just the position, but I guess there's no information in the background to handle this.

It's just one the powerful features of gtd (I know todoist is not about one productivity system in particular):

in one list, the next step of each project. And, when I'm done with one of these steps, the next one of that project appears on my list.

I believe this is what you are asking for, there are many variations on it throughout the thread. We do hope to implement some if not all in the future.
