How to best use filters

As your Todoist gets crowded with tasks, it gets harder to find what you need. That’s where filters come in handy.

Filters let you view tasks in any way you like: Based on their name, due date, project, label, priority, date created and more. It’s a super customizable way to find what you want.

Get the hang of using filters by trying a few out. Find these in your navigation pane under Filters:

  • The No due date filter displays every task in Todoist without a due date.
  • The High Priority filter shows you every task in Todoist with priority 1.

Now create your own filters to see the tasks that are important to you. Here are a few suggestions to start:

Filter name

Filter query

Filter description

Unscheduled work tasks

#Work & no due date

View every unscheduled task in your #Work project

Important tasks in the next 2 weeks

P1 OR P2 & due before: 14 days

See every high priority task in the next two weeks

Older than a month

Created before: 30 days ago

You want to make sure old tasks don’t slip through the cracks. To do that, use a filter that looks at tasks that were created before 30 days ago.

Saturday night

Due date:saturday & @night

You can use labels in filters, too. So if you use labels like @night to keep track of tasks you work on at night, check out if you’re free on Saturday night with this filter:

Assigned to me

#project & assigned to:me

If you’re working with a team on a shared project, you’ll find that you’re assigned to some tasks. A quick way to see every task you’re assigned to in a project is a project and assignment filter.

Tip: When you find a filter that you want to keep close by, add it to your Favorites.
