Searching for tasks assigned to a particular person


Hi Todoist team,

We would really need a feature where I can search the tasks assigned to a specific person which is not possible today through a filter. I understand that I can label a task using particular person name and search using label. But, giving label is redundant as I am already assigning task to that person. Lack of this feature is troubling us considerably as we have a team of 15 who is using this feature

Thanks Clyde,

Is there any method we can use in the mean time to see tasks that have been
assigned to a particular person?

Hi Praveen,

You can use labels for now in conjunction with assigning tasks to specific users. For example, you can have the following labels:


You can then filter specific labels to show the task that you're looking for. I understand that this is not ideal but it should work for the meantime. We'll look into improving this in the future.
