Hello,
Is it possible to search for all tasks that start with a specified string ?
ie if i have the following tasks

1 task hello world
task hello 1 world

I want to search for all tasks that start with "1 " ie only

1 task hello world

would be returned ?

Hi mfmcdonagh,
Thanks for getting in touch. Currently you can use name: to find tasks with particular text in the task name, but that doesn't work just for the beginning of the task name, sorry.

Thanks for your feedback that you'd like a separate search for the beginning of the task name! I've passed that along to the rest of the team.

Another thing you could do is to set those tasks differently, e.g. "1: task hello world" and then searching for name:"1: "

Hope this helps a bit for now!
