How can I create a filter for tasks that have no due data AND no labels?
"no due date & @" doesnt work.
Unfortunately, that's not possible, but we'll consider adding such option in the future and you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: https://todoist.com/Vote/show/7154/
For now, as a workaround, you could use negative filters for each individual label such as !@work & !@home etc. if you don't have too many labels.
Thanks David, the negative filter trick worked perfectly (I had only 2 labels anyway)!
I would love a no label filter. Thanks
Me too. Though I can't vote for it since Votebox is closed!
I'm using the label @work to individually tag all my work tasks since there's no way to filter by project (ideally I would filter by project=work and due date=today). However occasionally when I create a task I forget to label it. There's no quick and easy way to find the ones I've missed!
negative filter did't work. why.?
I can't reproduce this, I've added a task with a label @3.en.casa and then searching for !@3.en.casa in the search bar and also saving this as a filter worked the same - showed all tasks that don't have this label.
Please let me know if the filter you're saving contains only that or also any other queries or elements.
"this work when y put the sentence in the filter window : !@3.en.casa
but when y try to save it as a filter, don't work any more."
(sorry accidentaly I erase the old post).
I Had a long query, but didn't work so I go to the basics and try to set at least one filter.
When use the saved filter get this mensage:
Buscar `@ 3 en casa`
Ninguna tarea coincide con su búsqueda.
Buscar en tareas completas...
If you see the string, the dots missing. The original tag was @3_en_casa but I change It for dots if ths solve that problem. I dont know if is a language issue...
When I put the query in the windows sometimes works and sometimes not.
Thank you for clarifying, I've checked in the Spanish version now and you're right - it removes the dots, but if I change back to English, it works.
I'll pass it to our developers and we'll look into it. Sorry for the inconvenience.
the dots and this caracter too "_".
Let me know when the problem is solved.
A work arround will be using a stringwithoutspaces for tags?
According to the developers, we can't fix the issue with the dots in labels, please use _ instead.
However, we've discovered a different related issue - it adds spaces around a number in a label so even if you'd use this label:
it would search for:
@ 3 en_casa
We'll look into this.
yes that's the other issue.
there is a bunch of small problems in the spanish language, for example when you set a date. you should take a overall look.
We will improve the Spanish translation soon, a new translator is going over everything now.
Please let me know what date setting are you referring to and we'll look into this too (could be a different issue).
sorry I didn´t remeber it.
Good to know we have a solution soon.

Please consider a way to filter to show tasks with no labels. This would be very useful to me.
Agreed, I'd love to easily filter out everything that's labeled and see only the tasks without labels.
This would be definitely worth adding, especially considering you can use this filter:
7 days & !@home
it'd be ideal to have it so that you could just use the query as follows:
7 days & !@
...and since there is no identifier after the exclamation point it could grab all non-labeled tasks.
+1 on that syntax.
I agree that a no label filter would be very helpful.
I also think the !@ sounds like a great way to implement the filter.
Another vote for no label filter. I instinctively tried !@ but that didn't work.
david , what is the advance here?
do you have a fix for the spanish bug?
and what about the main question of this thread.
Reg. filtering - "no date" is already available, but there's no way to search for tasks without a label still.
Reg. Spanish bug - we did an overview of the entire translation already. If you still see any issues, we would greatly appreciate if you could let us know where in case the translator missed something.
The problem in spanish language still exists.
when I make a filter like this
overdue &!@3_en_casa, Today&!@3_en_casa,p1!@3_en_casa,p2&!@3_en_casa,p3&!@3_en_casa
I get this on the view.
overdue &!@ 3 _en_casa, Today&!@ 3 _en_casa, p 1 !@ 3 _en_casa, p 2 &!@ 3 _en_casa, p 3 &!@ 3 _en_casa
So I don´t get nothing because the system insert spaces between numbers.
This problem happend only when I set the lenguage to spanish. It is not a "traslation problem".
Thank you for this information, I can confirm that this is indeed still happening. I'm passing it to the developers now.
Remember, the original problem was with dots "." and the reason for start to use this character "_" , is only a way to dodge the problem real problem.
Please, read this full thread for all the information related to this issue.
I remember now. The dots issue will, according to the developers, not be fixed so please use _ instead, but the other problem is with the spacing, it definitely shouldn't add spaces around the number, but it does for some reason. We'll look into this again.
Any ETA on the filter by no-label feature yet? Is that on the roadmap?
For anyone wanting to vote on this missing feature, here's maybe a better thread for it:
