Two tasks [1.2.2. + 1.3] are flagged, [1.3.2.] is completed.
All other tasks have no attributes.
A) In both Tree View and List View, I want to see:
a1) Tasks that meet the 'Show flagged' rule [1.2.2. + 1.3.]
a2) Optional: Subtasks whose parent meet the 'Show flagged' rule (even if these subtasks themselves do not meet the 'Show flagged' rule) [1.3.1.]
B) Only in Tree view (but not in List View], I want to see:
Parent tasks that build the direct hierarchical tree for a subtask which is meeting the 'Show flagged' rule [1. + 1.2]
C) In both Tree View and List View, I don't want to see:
c1) Completed tasks [1.3.2.]
- which do not meet the 'Show flagged' rule
- whose parent tasks do not meet the 'Show flagged' rule either
- which have no subtasks that meet the 'Show flagged' rule
[1.1. + 1.1.1. + 1.2. + 1.2.1.]
Very often I go through all of my tasks and manually select the ones for today (I flag them).
So far, I have not achieved the above-described filter selection:
1. Filter bar
plus the options checked:
'Show all subtasks'
'Hide completed tasks'
Result: Does not work as expected as the 'completed task' [1.3.2.] is NOT hidden in the Tree View. However, it is correctly hidden in the List View.
Anyway, usually I do not use the Filter Bar as my filter query does not only include flagged tasks, but also priority-set tasks etc.
Therefore I prefer to use 'Find Tasks' which gives me more flexibility. But even with 'Find Tasks' I cannot get the simple result that I want:
2. Find Tasks
a) Rule 'Flag is set'
No options checked under 'Including'
Result: only [1.2.2.] is shown under 'What Matched'
Strictly speaking, this is correct as the 'Including option: Parent tasks' was not checked. However, I would expect from a filter result, that items which are directly matching are NEVER hidden, regardless what additional options is checked.
Click on 'Apply as Filter:
All of a sudden, both matching tasks [1.2.2.] AND [1.3.] are now shown in Task Tree and List View.
Click on 'Select All':
Only [1.2.2] is selected in Tree View. This is unexpected: I would expect that 'Apply as Filter' and 'Select All' deliver the same results.
b) Rule 'Flag is set'
Unter 'Including', the following option is checked: 'Parent tasks'
Result: both matching tasks are shown.
Obviously, 'Parent' is defined as a matching task with parent status (=that has a subtask). This is not what I would have expected, as explained above.
If I check the option 'Filtered-out tasks' under 'Including', it makes no difference at all, no matter if I click on 'Apply as Filter' or on 'Show All'. I would have expected that this option includes the subtasks of a matching task [1.3.1.].
Thank you for reading all of this and your comments,
Hi Great developers
I'm using ToDoLis for a couple of months.
This is very handy.
The problem is:
when I type an RTL text that contains some English words in the middle if the text, the text will be disordered.
I really appreciate if you kindly add a feature of Switching layout of tasklist view from LTR to RTL or at least kindly implement some way to switch title of all tasklists to RTL.
This will solve the problem if I can switch the default layout of all tasklists to RTL. So the default paragraph layout of task titles got RTLized.
Not sure if this is just me, but I am seeing some odd filtering behaviour.
I have a custom filter on. I go to treeview, and toggle the filter off. I check in (i.e. can't edit), I then check out again. The filter is automatically reapplied, but it does not appear in the filter bar (filters appear off).
I then hit F12 (filter toggle), and the filter is removed (all tasks visible).
I hit F12 again, the filter is reapplied, but this time the filter bar is updated.
Yep, that is it.
I could have made that a bit clearer...
Another thing I have noticed. I am in Listview with a custom filter on. I copy a task and paste after. It does not appear.
I then go to treeview. The pasted task is there, underneath the original. I select the new task and go back to Listview. The original task is again selected, and the new task is not visible. This happens even if I alter the new task in some way.
The new task appears if I restart TDL.
I like the idea of the "shortcut to task", created by Shift-Mousedragging but I can't find any way to jump to destination task via the shortcut. Can anyone enlighten me? If it is really not there could that be added, please?
Thanks. Yes, that mirroring is what makes them great for what I want to use them (referencing task splitup elements from daily worklog). But I really need "follow the reference" functionality for that. Using task link or dependency is not only one click more but doesn't reflect task changes...
6.8... Did you say 6.7.1? Not pressing, just asking
