[Duplicate] Add Folder Filter Option

[From Wrike: Interested in this request? Vote on this post.]

We have a folder structure like this:

Company

Location

Department

Year

Each project/task is tagged with a folder from each of these categories (Company A, Location B, IT, 2017). We would like to filter all tasks by a combination of these folder tags. Reports work for this, but it's not intuitive.

Hi again Matt :) Do you think you could tell me a little more about this one? Are you trying to find all tasks that live in 2/4 or 3/4 folders? For example, you might be looking for a task in Company D, Location Z, 2016 (and you don't care about the team), or some combination of that search.

Correct. It doesn't appear that there's a way to filter out tags/folders. A couple of examples:

IT has tasks in multiple locations. If I'm traveling to a site, I want to see all open IT tasks for it so I make the most of my trip.

We might want to see HR tasks specific to Company A, but not company B.

We might want to see which department finished the most tasks in a given year.

Got it, thanks Matt! We have search commands which let you filter by 1 or 2 Folders but unfortunately not by more than two. There are instructions on how to filter by up to two Folders here. That command should help in some of the cases you describe (like too see all the IT tasks for a particular company).

That'll do the trick in a pinch. Would still be more helpful to be able to filter on more than 2 folders. Thanks.

Hi Matt! Your post was technically first, but I'm marking it as a duplicate because we have two posts requesting the same functionality and want to keep posts consolidated.
