How to search for tasks containing tom?

P

When I attempt to search for a word beginning with "tom", I get a list of tasks that are due tomorrow. for instance, create a task with the word "tomdroid" in it.

Try to search for tomdroid, and you'll get a list of tasks that are due tomorrow, rather than the tomdroid task you wanted.

How do I search for words that are "reserved"?

Hello Pete,

In cases of keywords that are assigned to shortcuts (tom, tod, mon, tue, fri etc.), please use the prefix q: so if you search for:

q:tom

or

q: tom

(space doesn't matter), you will force Todoist to query the text as-is without prioritizing its linked functionality.


Best regards,
David
