DataView to create task overview

What I’m trying to do

I create general meeting notes where I tag actions I need to discuss with people as follow:

#todo/discuss/sister
- discuss a
- discuss b
- discuss c

#todo/discuss/brother
- discuss d
- discuss e
- discuss f

Now I want to have an overview page where I want to have a view of things i need to discuss with certain people (this should contain tasks form all the pages in my vault).
For this i created a new page with the following dataview:

Discuss with my Sister

TASK from #todo/discuss/sister  

Discuss with my Brother

TASK from #todo/discuss/brother  

However the above dataview returns: No results to show for task query.

Any advise is highly appreciated.

While smart people have not answered you, I can suggest starting with this by changing the data

[!todo]

Task From #todo/discuss 
Where !completed 
Group by (discuss)
Sort (discuss)

Thank you for the suggestion. This would indeed only show the non-completed todo’s. However, I don’t see any results (nor completed, nor not-completed). Dataview states: No results to show for task query.

Probably because there is nothing in that particular tag, try doing it separately for your sister and separately for your brother.

Task from #todo/discuss/sister
When !completed 

This should already show all tasks by sister, but I would add grouping and sorting by date.

Task from #todo/discuss/sister
When !completed 
Group by (date)
Sort (date)

When I add the tag in front of every task such as:

  • #todo/discuss/sister topic to discuss with sister
  • #todo/discuss/brother topic to discuss with brother

then I get it working.
However I was hoping that if I would indent(group) the task below the tag that this would also work but apparently not. Do you have perhaps a solution/idea for this?

What don’t you like if they are separate? Why do you want to group them? By what criteria do you want to group them?
