Using dypt

Filtering and sorting

Understanding dypt’s robust filtering and sorting system

dypt includes a powerful filtering and sorting system that allows you to find the tasks you need quickly and easily.

Learning how to use it effectively will help you to get the most out of dypt and save you time.


Filters are available on the "Hierarchy" and "All tasks" pages:

  • Hierarchy: filter across subtasks of the current parent task
  • All tasks: filter across all of your tasks

Click a filter/sort menu to show the dropdown

On the desktop version, the individual filters are shown directly in the subtask header bar.

On the mobile version, the filters are available via the Filters button which is located at the right side of the subtask header bar.

Filtering types

  • Title: tasks that contain the specified text
  • Deadline: select between 'overdue', 'today', 'this week' and 'this month'
  • Time: select between '15m', '30m', '1h', '2h', and '3h'
  • Status: select between 'not started', 'in progress' and 'completed'
  • Priority: select between 'none', 'low', 'mid' and 'high'
  • Archived: select between 'archived' and 'active'

Applying multiple filters

The Status, Priority and Archived filters allow you to select multiple options at once within the same filter. For example you could choose to see tasks that are both 'not started' and 'in progress'.

Multiple different types of filters can be applied at once. For example, you could choose to see tasks that are both 'not started' and 'in progress' and have a priority of 'high'.

View all of your filters at a glance

You can see and apply filters across all the filter types by pressing the downward doublechevron on the left side of the subtasks header bar.

This will show a table view of your filters, and the counts of tasks that match each filter.

You can apply filters by clicking them, they will light up when they are applied.

Hide the table view by clicking the upward chevron.


Sorting is available on the "Hierarchy" and "All tasks" pages via the filter buttons.

In the same way as filtering, you can sort in ascending or descending order by clicking the up and down arrows on the filter drop down menus.

You can only sort by one field at a time. For example you can sort by priority, or by deadline, but not by both at the same time.

When no sorting is applied, tasks are sorted by their creation date in ascending order (oldest first).

The exception to this is on the "Hierarchy" page where you have reordered your tasks by dragging and dropping them. In this case, the tasks will be sorted in the order that you have specified.

Saved in the URL

What's a URL?

A URL is the address of a web page, it stands for "Uniform Resource Locator" . For example, the URL of this page is

You can see the URL of the page you are on by looking at the address bar in your browser.

As well as containing the address of the page, the URL can also contain additional information about the page.

Filters and sorting on dypt are applied via the URL. This means that you can bookmark a view of your tasks and share it with others. When you open a bookmarked URL, the filters and sorting will be applied automatically.

Clearing filters and sorting

To remove a certain filter or sort, simply click the 'clear' button on the filters drop down menu.

To remove all filters and sorts click the "reset" link that shows up at the bottom of your task list when filters and sorts are applied.
