Hide a particular group of cards with a certain label?

I would like to create a quick filter that hides all issues with a particular label. When I try to do this, the filter seems to hide more than what I wanted it to. This filter is trying to hide all issues with the label of mylabel...

project = "MyProject" AND (labels != "mylabel" OR labels != "") and status != Closed

Hi there!

The problem here is that when you add a query to bring issues with "labels != mylabel", the search assumes that all issues must have a label, and this label is different from "mylabel". So what is missing is the inclusion of issues that have no labels. Does that make sense?

I believe your board filter is:

project = "MyProject" AND status != Closed

So the quick filter would be:


labels != "mylabel" OR labels is EMPTY

Hope it helps!
