Task List Displaying Tasks NOT Assigned to Me

Level 5

Hello, 

The task list is Paper is showing tasks that I created but that aren't assigned to me (the tasks are currently not assigned to anyone). This is when I sort the task list by "for me", with the intention of displaying only tasks that are asssigned to me.

Is this a known glitch? Is there a way only display tasks assigned to me in this task list?

Thanks!

Nirmana

Hi Nirmana (@Nirmana), happy Monday; I hope my message finds you well today! 
 
If I understand correctly, you’re currently looking at the at the things to Do tray on the Paper homepage 🏠, am I on the right track?
 
It would be worth mentioning that generally to-dos appear in Things to do ☑️ if:
 
Spoiler
  • The to-do is assigned to you (you were @ (at) mentioned in the to-do)
  • You created the to-do and added a due date, but it isn’t assigned to anyone
  • You created the to-do in a doc that isn’t shared with anyone
  • To-dos that you created and assigned to others 
I’m wondering which view you’re currently looking at, as there are some sorting options that could display slightly different results. Are you sorting by doc or by date? Would you mind including a step-by-step description, so as to re-ctreate the behavior on my end & see the results I’m getting? 
 
Thanks in advance & I’ll be awaiting your next reply!

Hi Jane, 

Thanks for your reply and yes, I'm looking at the Things to do tray - either on the Paper homepage or from a screen when I have a Paper doc open. 

Whether I sort by doc or sort by date, the tasks that I created still appear when I select the "for me" filter, even though those tasks are NOT assigned to me. 

Your link above helped, as I see that tasks I create in a document that's not shared with anyone will show up in my to-do list. That's the situation here.

Thanks for your help!
