Is there a way to see the task count in a particular filter?


Before the todoist next upgrade, filtering by priority came standard. I figured out how to re-create these filters and save them for future reference, but in the old version I could see the total number of tasks at each priority level with a glance, now I have to manually count them up.

Is there a way to bring this feature back? Maybe it could be included for all filter set-ups a user creates, so when we click on "Filter" and our list of filters shows up, beside each filter title you can see the total # of tasks in that filter?

It's disappointing that this feature was taken away in the upgrade, I hope this changes back.

Hi Quentin,

I'm sorry that the change has caused you issues, we will of course consider adding these within the filters tab in a future update. Please feel free to add this to the Votebox for now. http://todoist.com/Vote/

Hello Andri,

Unfortunately, for now that's not available, but we'll consider adding such option in the future.

Tasks count in a filter is a great feature.

In todoist on mobile phone that feature is present and it makes work much more efficient if You implement GTD methodology.

Hope that this feature will be available on the web also.

Best regards,

Yes, this feature became very relevant when filtering opened my eyes. :)
