In reply to @cadair:cadair.com
Can somebody point me to the documentation for org-tags-match-list-sublevels I have spent the last few minutes fruitlessly searching the org manual for it
Check out variable index
09:27:55
@yantar92:matrix.orgyantar92 (Org contributor)Also, there is always C-h v09:28:28
@yantar92:matrix.orgyantar92 (Org contributor)

However, note the docstring:

This variable is semi-obsolete and probably should always be true.  It
is better to limit inheritance to certain tags using the variables
org-use-tag-inheritance and org-tags-exclude-from-inheritance.
09:29:16
@cadair:cadair.comCadairYeah I just found that09:30:09

What exactly is the problem? And what did you try?
09:32:07
@cadair:cadair.comCadairI am trying to make an agenda search which is all tasks with a given tag09:34:55
@cadair:cadair.comCadairI have this:09:35:10
@cadair:cadair.comCadair
          ;; Reoccurring Tasks
          (tags-todo "reoccurring&-HOLD-CANCELLED"
                     ((org-agenda-overriding-header "Reoccurring Tasks")
                      (org-tags-match-list-sublevels nil)
                      (org-agenda-sorting-strategy
                       '(category-keep))))
09:35:13

                      (org-agenda-sorting-strategy
                       '(category-keep))))
Should be "+reoccurring-HOLD-CANCELLED"
09:36:46
@yantar92:matrix.orgyantar92 (Org contributor)"&" is there mostly to resolve matching order with "|"09:37:37

What if you remove org-tags-match-list-sublevels?
09:40:45
@cadair:cadair.comCadairThen it lists all the subtasks of the one it's matching but not the other one09:42:34

Ok. Does the missing task have parents with HOLD or CANCELLED tags?
09:43:12
@cadair:cadair.comCadairAlso while I am here, is there a way to turn on log and clock table view for an agenda by default?09:43:33

@yantar92:matrix.orgyantar92 (Org contributor)
In reply to @cadair:cadair.com

Then, can you add another heading that should match into the same file and see if it matches?
