This will expand your Filter options. From here, use the following categories to pare down the displayed Tasks, or expand your view of Tasks that have been assigned. Multiple Filters can be applied at one time.

You are also able to constrain your list of visible tasks according to their due date, by clicking any of “Due Today”, “Due Tomorrow”, or “Due this Week”:
