There are times when you'll want to only see tasks from a certain project, a group of projects or even just a section within a project - for instance when things get busy and you want to focus.

You can search for tasks in a project, a sub-project or a section by simply entering a search query into the search bar at the top of your Todoist. For example, if you typed #Work, you’ll see all the tasks in the Work project.

Here are some other handy search queries to use to find tasks by a project, a sub-project, or a section:

Query
