You can also click the filters icon to the right of the search field to access advanced filter options. A dropdown will open where you can specify certain tags, priority levels, projects, or task creators. Using the checkbox option at the bottom of the filters pane, you can also refine to show only tasks assigned directly to you.
The My Work view will update automatically as you select each filter criteria. The filters icon will also update to reflect the number of active filter criteria currently applied.
