Focus Filter

Some apps offer the possibility to choose certain options in relation to the current focus of the device. For example a calendar app will display only your 'work' calendar when you activate your device's 'work' focus.

It would be really great if GoodTask would offer this possibility, too.
What I would like to do is choosing a special (smart) list for the widget and connected it to a certain focus. This would help a lot, especially when running GoodTasks via the watch widget.

Thanks for the feedback.

The app itself has list filter inside each smart list so it would be very confusing to implement iOS's focus filter. I'll keep your feedback though.


On the phone or the ipad the widget smart lists which filter certain task lists work very well.
However most of the time I use my watch when dealing with GoodTask, simply because I'm not sitting somewhere where I can operate the phone but need my hands free while "running around", leaving the iphone sitting somewhere in my bag (For example imagine work like gardening).

While it is easily possible to built a focus homescreen containing a GoodTask smartlist widget, this doesn't seem possible at the watch, where I have to switch the task list manually. I simply was hoping for a more convenient and useful way to integrate the focus mode in my workflow.

Thank you for your response though.

Thanks for the details. I'll keep it on the list to consider. Thanks!

I think IOS filters would compliment smart lists very nicely.
Currently, I have to create most smart lists twice, one for personal and one for work—related tasks.

With IOS focus filters, on the other hand, I could simply filter all work related tasks for every smart list all at once.
