Taking full advantage of what Todoist offers is so important. With filters, you can sort your tasks in a very customized way.
A query can be created from a number of factors:
- Due date
- Priority level
- Project and sub-projects
- Date task was created
- Assigned to
A filter query connects these elements with an & sign. For example: "p1 & @proactive & today" (priority level, label, due date).
