Global Filter

You can set a global filter in the settings so that Tasks only matches specific checklist items. For example, you could set it to #task to only track checklist items as task if they include the string #task. It doesn’t have to be a tag. It can be any string. Leave it empty to regard all checklist items as tasks.

Example with global filter #task:

- [ ] #task take out the trash

If you don’t have a global filter set, all regular checklist items will be considered a task:

- [ ] take out the trash


If you use a tag such as #task as the global filter, you cannot add sub-tags to that tag.
