Working with popular filters

When you're viewing the issues, activity, or reports dashboard, you can filter results either with your own custom filters or our default popular filters. This article defines each of our popular filters.

You can access a popular filter by clicking on the Viewing: [Filter] label when you're on the dashboard section of DoneDone. The same filters will appear regardless of whether you're looking at all projects, some projects, or just one.

Popular Filter Filters on...
All your issues Issues you are fixing, testing or cc'd on.
Your active issues The set of "all your issues" that are active (i.e. not closed, fixed, on hold, or marked as duplicate)
Issues waiting on you* Issues you are fixing or testing where you need to take the next action.
Issues you're waiting on* Issues you are fixing or testing where you're waiting on someone else to take the next action.
Issues you're cc'd on Issues you are cc'd on (but not the primary fixer or tester)
All issues Every issue you have access to
All active issues Every issue you have access to that are not closed, fixed, on hold, or marked as duplicate.
All inactive issues Every issue you have access to that is closed, fixed, or marked as duplicate.
All issues on hold Every issue you have access to that is on hold.

The Issues waiting on you and Issues you're waiting on filter are two of our most powerful and unique filters. Here's a deeper explanation into what each filter means.

Issues waiting on you*

When you select Issues waiting on you, DoneDone takes every issue that you’re working on and filters them out based on their current status and your role. What’s left are all issues where you need to take the next action. If any issue is in the following state, you’ll see them in this list:
  • You’re the fixer and the issue is Open
  • You’re the fixer and the issue is In Progress
  • You’re the fixer,and the tester has been Pushed Back to you
  • You’re the fixer and the tester marked the Fix Not Confirmed
  • You’re the tester and the fixer believes it is Not an Issue
  • You’re the tester and the fixer deems it Not Reproducible
  • You’re the tester and the fixer says it is Missing Information
  • You’re the tester and the fixer has marked it Ready for Retest

In all of the above cases, you would be the natural next person to act upon the issue. Once an issue is not in one of the states above, they’ll be instantly removed from your issues waiting on you.

Issues you're waiting on*

This filter is essentially the opposite of the   Issues waiting on you filter. It's all of your assigned issues that are waiting on the other person.
  • You’re the tester and the issue is Open
  • You’re the tester and the issue is In Progress
  • You’re the tester and you’ve Pushed Back the issue to the fixer
  • You’re the tester and marked an issue as Fix Not Confirmed
  • You’re the fixer and marked an issue as Not an Issue
  • You’re the fixer and marked an issue as Not Reproducible
  • You’re the fixer and marked an issue as Missing Information
  • You’re the fixer and marked an issue as Ready for Retest

By using both these two filters, you can quickly scan issues that you need to tend to right now vs. issues that you’re waiting on someone else to tend to.
