Search is the simplest way to find what you’re looking for in Todoist. Here’s how you can use search to find a task, project, label, filter, or comment:
- In the main menu, click the search bar. The Quick Find menu will appear.
- Enter the search term(s). A list of tasks, projects, and comments that match the search terms will appear.
- Click the relevant search item to open it. If you haven’t found what you're looking for yet, click Show more results at the bottom to look at more results.
To search through task comments, click the Comments pane at the top-right of the search results.
To search through completed tasks, click Search completed tasks below the search results.
Narrow down your search
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can narrow down your search results by date, by priority level, by project and more by using queries in your search. For example, you could enter August 7 directly into the search field to see all tasks due on August 7th. Here are a few more examples:
|August 7||Tasks due on August 7|
|Today & p1||Tasks due today with priority 1|
|Next 31 days||Tasks due in the next 31 days|
|Tomorrow & p3||Tasks due tomorrow with priority 3|
|@waiting||Tasks with the label @waiting|
|Label:waiting||Tasks with the label @waiting|
|30 days||Tasks due in the next 30 days|
|Assigned to:John Smith||Tasks assigned to John Smith|
How to search for completed tasks
Sometimes you want to check back in on something you’ve already finished. Here’s how you can search for completed tasks:
- Type the keyword(s) into the Find search field at the top, and press enter.
- At the bottom of your search results, click on Search completed tasks.
- You can now see all completed tasks that match your keyword(s).
- You can also uncomplete them as usual or read the comments.
