Search impossible

thomasb84 says:

assume I have 3 tasks with tags:
- Task1 with tag A1
- Task2 with tag A2
- Task3 with tags A1 and A2

I'm trying to find a search to find all tasks, that "not tagged with A1 alone", i.e. the result should include Task2 (not tagged with A1) and Task3 (not tagged with A1 alone, but also with A2).

Thanks a lot and best regards

Hi thomasb84,
It's not possible to search for tasks based on the interaction of the tags by themselves, but you could search for combinations to find just these tasks.

That may get tedious to construct based on how many tags you have but it could be something like the following:

tag:a2 OR tag:a3 OR (tag:a1 AND tag:a2) OR (tag:a1 AND tag:a3) OR etc.

Hope this helps a bit!
