How do I filter "tasks assigned to me" and also "task unassigned" because they are for me but its not a shared project?

How do I have a filter that shows tasks assigned to me from a shared project AND tasks i created for myself in an unshared project. It looks like those would be "unassigned"

Hi Heidi,

Tasks that are due for you will show up on the Today view, and all date based views. So you can just use those if you'd like to see all tasks that you have. You can also view all tasks by searching "view all".

There is no way to filter items by project, so it depends on exactly what you want. You could create a filter for Assigned to You and a certain label. :to_me: & @labelname

Regards,
Brendon.

Bredon,

Why dont all tasks on unshared projects just automatically assign to me? Its frustrating that tasks in unshared project are not showing up in "tasks assigned to me" filter

i agree with Steven- shouldn't they show up then?

Hi,

Those filters are new, since we released sharing. So it may be changed in the future on how exactly it works. Also, it was designed to be a shared project, so it could be assigned to you, by someone else, and tasks you create are something else.

Brendon.

I agree with the sentiments above in that it'd be useful to be able to see all unassigned tasks (mine by default) and also tasks assigned to me. That makes up my full task list. I'll use labels for now.

Ok - I created a label for my tasks - @ToMe

I then created a filter called All Me - :to_me:,@ToMe

I then added a task and added the @ToMe label.

When I choose the label view for @ToMe, I see the task. When I choose the filter All Me, I see my assigned tasks ok but the @ToMe label section underneath shows no tasks.

Is this a bug?

Jamie,

If you use :to_me: & @ToMe instead, does that still occur?

I get no matching tasks then. That makes sense to me as that is a logical AND isn't it?

I have no cases that are assigned to me and have the label @ToMe

Jamie,

Sorry you are correct. Though I have just tested your previous suggestion and it works without issue. I get tasks assigned to me and tasks with a label attached, in that order.

I believe the issue may be because ToMe almost seems like Tom, as in Tomorrow. I think it's wanting to search for tasks set for tomorrow. If you make the label @me instead, does the issue still persist.

Regards,
Brendon.

No - the issue persists.

I see the task in the Inbox with the @me label and see it when I select the @me label in the labels list but it doesn't show in the filter, even though it does list the @me label heading when looking at the filter.

Jamie,

I can't seem to reproduce this issue. Please try signing out of your account and back in again. Clearing of the cache for your browser may help as well. Does this happen in another browser, mobile?

If you create another one, something differnet, @testing does it work?

Regards,
Brendon.

Ok - it works for me if I put the label first in the filter but not second.

ie. @testing,:to_me: works (I see tasks from both label and filter)
:to_me:,@testing doesn't work (I only see tasks from the filter)

I'll just make sure I put the label first.

To try and answer the original question

"How do I have a filter that shows tasks assigned to me from a shared project AND tasks i created for myself in an unshared project. It looks like those would be "unassigned""

I also wanted this - and now use the filter

!:to_others

This seems to work for me, Hope it helps

Dave.
