The mytag: filter option does not work as expected. I have several tags that run like "Logos 7 Anglican Silver", "Logos 7 Orthodox Starter", etc. I currently have 230 resources with tags like this. (This is what I get in the desktop app.) I have no tag that just says "Logos 7". However, in the mobile app, if I invoke the filter

mytag:"Logos 7"

I get about 12 resources to show up on my library. This seems like a bug. Does anyone want to confirm this?

Thanks!

Screenshots might be helpful.

I'm surprised your quotes work.  If I use 2 quotes, it goes blank. No can do (mobile)

But it should locate partials. For example mytag:churchh finds all my ChurchHistory tags. I assign tag names to take advantage of that.

mytag:"Base translation" works fine for me - it is also a partial tag with multiple values. I'd need to see a screenshot to see what is set that limits your results.

It's interesting to me that I get good results if I don't use quotation marks at all. Thus,

mytag:logos 7

gives me the results I would expect. That's a bit surprising to me, but maybe that's how it's designed to work.

Anyway, here's a screenshot of the original using

mytag:"logos 7"

This is working as designed. Your tag isn't "Logos 7" it is Logos 7. The syntax will not accommodate the quote marks.

Yesterday (fire and brimstone here in AZ, so not sure), trying to get mobile to work, I switched over to the web app, to get the correct answer. Oddly, it delivered the wrong answer ... the same exact wrong answer as the mobile just seconds earlier. A second try corrected the situation. From that, I deduced the filter strangeness is from the server logic. And gave up.

My testing shows that the count returned is approaching random ...

You should be able to do this via the "funnel" icon (i.e. to filter your library).

True, but when there are lots of options there, that method is much slower than typing specific filters.

Thanks,

It's accommodating them just fine when I search for any of my multi-word MyTags on the desktop. That should also work on Mobile (though you are correct that it does not).

One workaround for OP should be to recreate his MyTags as single-word tags.

For clarification: the desktop syntax accommodates the quote marks, or the syntax accommodates multi-word tags without the quote marks?

The former.
