TickTick provides "AND" and "OR" for combining the around two filters to find the exact tasks you need in seconds, which could help to focus on the right things when used correctly.
What do "AND" and "OR" mean?
|AND||Tasks should meet both filters at the same time|
|OR||Tasks should meet at least one of the filters|
For example, the filter query "today AND high priority" will list all tasks that are due today and also with high priority.
Meanwhile, you can use them in the same filter like "today OR overdue" for searching tasks that are either due today or are overdue. (Only Tag has both "AND" and "OR" for choice, the others just support "OR" by default.)
Here are a few handy examples to try out:
|Filter query||What it does|
|today OR high priority||Show all tasks that are either due today or with high priority.|
|next 7 days AND assigned to me||Show all tasks that are assigned to me and are also due next 7 days.|
|(today OR overdue) AND high priority||Show all tasks that are either due today or are overdue and also with high priority.|
|(#computer AND #work)||Show all tasks are tagged with both #computer and #work.|
|inbox AND no date||Show all tasks without date in inbox.|
|(work OR team) AND high priority||Show all tasks with high priority in either "work" or "team" project.|
