Filtering isue

I am having issues trying to make the following filter.

All tasks that are due or over due
Any tasks that are high priority with or without due dates unless they are due in the future.

So I do not want to see future tasks, just those dues or overdue but I also want to see high priority tasks in the same view.

Hi @Sytone, thanks for using GoodTask.

You can achieve this in multiple ways but I'll recommend below one.

  • Scheduled filter with 'Within 1 day' : This will show all the tasks that's overdue and due today
  • 'High Priority' filter (OR - 2)
  • Undated filter (AND - 1)

You may add in above order and set order 1 on last filter while adding it. This will add high priority undated filter to first one.

Thanks!

Thanks. Looks like that got it. Are there details on the order and grouping of the or and and?

Trying to understand if ordering is with the last foyer or the last group.

Filter 1 AND Filter 2 OR filter 3

Or is it

(Filter 1 AND Filter 2) OR filter 3

(Operation and order) is a set. It's in between 2 filters and you can think order as ().

With 3 filters I mentioned above, it'll be like

A OR (B AND C).

Tasks that satisfies both B and C are filtered first and then it's added with tasks that's filtered with A.

Thanks!

So how would filters be configured for scenarios like this?

(A AND B) OR (C AND D)

(A AND B) OR (C AND D AND E)

(A AND B) OR (C AND D)
: A
: B with AND 1
: C with OR 3
: D with AND 2

(A AND B) OR (C AND D AND E)
: A
: B with AND 1
: C with OR 4
: D with AND 2
: E with AND 3

Thanks!
