Boolean search not working

I have some tasks labeled "@wachten" (Dutch for waiting). When I search for "priority 2 & @wachten" something goes wrong. I get all actions that have priority 2 AND all actions labeled "@wachten".

What I do need is a list of only those priority 2 actions that are also labeled "@wachten". How do I get that result?

Hi Michiel,

Are you using Todoist in dutch? If you switch to English does the issue continue? Of course, I mean to only test this, not to switch for good.

Yes, I selected 'Dutch' in the settings menu. So I changed the language to English like you said. The boolean search does work correctly now. That's odd! :D

Hello Michiel,

The reason it didn't work is because in the Dutch version, you need to search for "prioriteit 1 & @wachten", it won't understand "priority".

Alternatively, you can shorten it up and just type "p1 & @wachten" :)

Best regards,
