combining filters

I try to use the eisenhower method together with my todoist tasks.
Therefore I want to filter specific priorities and at the same time due-dates.

My filter for the first quadrant works fine:
(p 1, p 2 ) & (overdue, 8 days)

For the second quadrant I would like to show the results of this filter (which is working fine):
(p 1, p 2 ) & ! 8 days & !overdue
And also all tasks with priority 3.

Using more parenthesis like this:
((p 1, p 2 ) & ! 8 days & !overdue ) & p 3
but that sadly did not work.

Is it possible to create a filter for my needs?
Or is it possible to filter filters, like
filter1 & filter2
filter1 & p 3

Thank you very much & greetings from Germany,

Hi Daniel,

Filtering filters is not supported right now. Looking at your third example, I can't quite make out what exactly you want to filter. Can you maybe expand as what the goal is? I may be able to give you some alternatives filters.

Hi Clyde,

thanks for responding.
I would like to see tasks with priorities 1 and 2 that are not overdue or due within the next 8 days AND tasks with priority 3 no matter when or if they are due.

(p 1, p 2 ) & ! 8 days & !overdue AND p 3
would fit my needs and show important tasks that are not urgent right now

Hi Daniel,

Can you please try this and let me know if it works or not: "(p1 & !8days) (p1 & !overdue), (p2 & !8days) (p2 & !overdue), p3"?

Hi Clyde,

your suggestion pointed into the right direction.
It did not work for me, because it showed for example the overdue p1 tasks.
But dividing p1 & p2 makes the difference.
Now I found this sollution for me:
(p 1 & ! 8 days & !overdue) | (p 2 & ! 8 days & !overdue) | p3

Thank you very much for your help! :-)
