Trying to filter my plan view to ONLY show any workitems containing one of three tags.  Tried using the ! and entering three different exclude filters and also tried one exclude filter with a space in between ( i.e. !tags:tag1 !tags:tag2 !tags:tag3) but it is not working. I have reviewed the syntax guidance here but still looking for some help.  Thanks

I don't think you can do it even the exclude filter has an OR option. What you want to achieve is the complete opposite to "exclude: tags:tag1 tags:tag2 tags:tag3", which can only be done with an "include" filter.

Thanks for the reply.  Include filter?

I didn't make it clear. There is currently no "include" filter, so it would be an RFE. In other words, I can't find any ways to achieve what you want now.
