"All" Tasks view

I want a view where I can see all projects, notes, and tasks in a single view. It is possible in MyLifeOrganized and OmniFocus.

It’s difficult to make a convincing argument for why this is needed, because it’s probably partly psychological. The calm of being able to see the big picture. Being able to see the status of every project. During review it’s possible to click on each individual project, review, then click on the next. That sounds sufficient. But for some reason it isn’t.

There is the “Projects” list, which is almost there, but it doesn’t include tasks under the project! (Although it does include project notes, which is very nice).

See the screenshot of what I’m thinking of.

Some might see this as unneeded or low priority, but for some people I think it helps put the “trusted” in “truted system.”


So basically you would like a list of projects with all sub-tasks displayed?

Exactly. That is a much more succinct way to phrase it. :slight_smile:

Here is what can be done.

We already have an “All” list - you can click “All” label under Tags and view every non-archived item which exists is in the current area.

The problem with this view is that it doesn’t group items by project/notebook.

To improve this, we can add a view switch that will change how the items are presented (grouped/ungrouped).

This can work for other lists as well, not just “All”.

What do you think?

Sounds great! It’s nice it would be able to be used in other lists, too! Would it work in the starred focus/today view as well?

I don’t see why it would not work.

hello is this implemented i want to see all my todos in one view sorted by date added and so it shows what project the task/todo belong to

I believe the original request has been implemented a while ago.

In the navigation section on the left, select the “All” label. Then enable grouping by project.

I tried this. Now my question: How can I go back from this view to where I was before? Nothing happens when I click the “All”-label again.

Go back where? If you are in “All” then you can press Backspace and go back to the previous view. Changing the view grouping type doesn’t count as navigation, so it will not “go back”.

I’m probably not getting the question though :slight_smile:

Backspace is what I am looking for^^ Thanks!

hello is possible also for android??

hello i found it

i press tags > tap filter > then same view come up


Hello, I have to say that I am happy to have found your software. I love it so far! I bought my iPad to do artwork and handle tasks. I say that so you know I am new to the iPad as well.
I am doing home renovations so I have projects by room. Then I have mostly sequential tasks below each one. All is well until I need to see all that I need a contractor to work on. I want an “All” view and then filter on “Contractors”. So I can ask the person on the phone if they also do flooring as well as tiling?
Also all tasks that are less than 15 min. So I can take care of them before there sequence if possible.
I thought Context was the answer but itonly showed a few not everything.
Thanks very much!
On the iPad - Is there a way?

Hello! Unfortunately the “all” view is only available in the desktop app. You normally wouldn’t run into this issue, since the Next list is sufficient to view actionable items and filter them. However in your case it seems to not be enough. I’m not sure how to work around this, apart from making the projects parallel and using Next, of course.
