Todoist Settings - Custom Query


I have enabled a Custom Query of "10 days and overdue". When I first bring up either the website or the Outlook Plug In, that's what I see.

When I click on the 3 horizontal bars on the left of the Outlook Plug In to access some settings, or when I look at the left-hand bar on your website, in both places I have the choice of "Today", "Next 7 days", or Inbox. If I choose one of those views (like I might choose Inbox to see all entries sometimes), then I can't get back to my Custom Query unless I log out and log back in, when it then comes up as the default.

Since I've set a Custom Query, shouldn't that show up as a choice for me without logging out?

Hi John,

You are speaking of the Start Page, and it's just that, a page that shows up when you start. You can though now create your own filters, which you can find on the left hand menu (the 3 tabs, Projects, Lables, filter).

You save a filter for your custom query, and it will work the same way.

Yes, but those three tabs (not counting Project, Labels and Filter) are built-in queries. I have a custom query set in your settings, but if I leave it I can't get it back without logging out and logging back in. That's not optimal and should be a feature request for the dev team.

Does anyone know how to set up a query in todoist that filters Priority 1 tasks for certain projects-eg 3 or 4 projects that I will name?

(p:Project1, p:Project2, p:Project3) & priority 1
