Outlook addin filter won't match my todoist.com custom query


How can I get Outlook addin filter to match my todoist.com custom query? Is there a way to create a custom query in the addin?

Hi Darrell,

The add-in mainly allows you to easily add emails from Outlook as tasks but the rest of the info and setting should be the same which means that your custom query should be available in the Outlook add-in. Can you please let me know if this isn't the case?

Hi Clyde,
This is my custom query at Todoist.com: 9 days, overdue, p1, p2, p3 (works great)

These queries are available in the Outlook addin and they work:
next 7 days

When I try to paste "9 days, overdue, p1, p2, p3" in the Outlook addin it allows the paste but does not use it.

Also the "magnifying glass" is there but unavailable for use.

I really like the addin but I wish I could set a custom query.

What happens if you type the query out instead of coping and pasting?

I fooled around with it a while and it seems to be working now. Not sure why. I'll be back if I get more information or insight into this.

it's an language problem. logout and change language to yours because filters are only working in proper selected language :)
