combining filters, sort order failure

Related to https://todoist.com/Support/show/35489/ but an extra issue above and beyond the Android only focus of that question.

In the Outlook/Windows/web I use a default view/filter of "overdue, 3 days, no due date, :to others:" which shows me any overdue items followed by the items due today, tomorrow and the next day, followed by items with no due dates, followed by items I've assigned to others. Works nicely (see Android exception above). However, if I subtly change the sort order to "overdue, 3 days, :to others:, no due date", which is a preferable view when I need a print out, the results return the first three parameters and then "No tasks matches your query" under the final header of "Tasks with no due date". I've confirmed this is consistent across Outlook, Windows and web apps, and Android is consistent with the behavior reported in prior ticket (the use of ":to others:" is overriding anything else).

Hello Michael,

Please try to put :to_others: between parenthesis. I've tried this filter:

overdue, 3 days, (:to others:), no date

and it seems to work correctly.

We'll look into this, nonetheless.

Best regards,

This does resolve the filters correctly. Thank you.

This issue has now been fixed so it will work also without the brackets (for now on the web, it will be also fixed on mobile soon).

Thanks for the fix, David. I can confirm it is also working well in the Outlook add-in.
