Within Teamwork.com, you can filter the tasks in existing task lists in your project.

Go to the List area of your project and select a task list from the left navigation pane.

Using the quick search field at the top of the list, you can filter the tasks based on assignee or task title.

Note: Attached milestones will not be displayed under their associated task list when a filter is applied in this view.

Click the filters button in the top right to open the advanced filters pane.

Assigned To

Filter by which tasks are assigned to a specific user or users.

  • Include items from deleted users - deleted users will appear for selection in the Assigned To dropdown.
  • Include tasks for users' companies - show tasks assigned to the companies associated with each selected user.
  • Include tasks for users' teams - show tasks assigned to teams where each selected user is a member.

Clicking Show more options will expand the filter and allow you to filter to tasks assigned to teams or companies and their individual members.

Note: When you filter to a team or company, tasks assigned to individual members will also appear.


When setting the date, you can choose to see results for when the task is due using the set time frames found within the drop-down. You can also choose to view tasks that are late.

In addition to the predefined date ranges, you can also set a custom date range or number of days.

When choosing a custom date range, a within_days range, or any range that is in the future you will have three further options to choose from:

  • Include late tasks - If selected, this will show overdue tasks in your search.
  • Include tasks with no date - If selected, this will show tasks with no start date or due date. 
  • Ignore start dates - If selected, this will show tasks with only a due date within the date parameters. 


You can choose to filter by priority. This can help you to focus in on tasks that may need more attention on the project.

When you select Show more options, you will see options to:

  • Select certain tags you wish to exclude from the results.
    • If you have Match all excluded tags enabled, only tasks with none of the selected excluded tags will be shown.
  • Show only untagged items in the results
