Making the filters more useful


Is it possible to move favourite filters (tomorrow's tasks for instance) to some special place for easier access?
If not, is it planned to be done that way?

Hello Roman,

Right now, aside from using drag & drop on the "Filters" tab to move them around within this list, it's not possible to "pin" them anywhere outside the "Filters" Tab. We may consider adding such option in the future, though.

Hi David.

Can i second the idea of being able to move defined Filters to a more prominent spot. This feature would be very powerful, for example, for GTD adherents like me who want a simple way to view 'Next Actions'. I use a filter called 'Next' which shows all of the priority 1 task, which for me simply means that i've processed the task and decided to do it. This is the main view i use for my tasks as it filters out the noise of everything else, allowing me to focus.

I came to Todoist from Wunderlist, which has a 'Starred' feature and it is the only feature i miss as i used it for this very reason. Being able to design your own filter and 'pin' it next to the Inbox etc. would be very powerful without messing too much with the simplicity - you could even limit it to one or two slots.

I'm sure others would find this very useful.

+1 for pinned filters. I'd love to have my filter as a 'cutom query' right under 'Next 7 Days'. Customizing these three entries would be great!
