Overdue tasks not sorted

MS

Hi, David!
When I choose the view "today, overdue" the overdue tasks are NOT SORTED. In my case different tasks are grouped in this way:

- Yesterday
- 2 days ago
- today
- 8 days ago
- 7 days ago
- 6 days ago
- 8 days ago
- 7 days ago
- 8 days ago
- 6 days ago

Confusing. And before you ask: Yes, I tried logging off/on, clearing cache etc.

Regards, Michael

Similar problem for me. Strange ordering. I also have two sets of tasks under "Yesterday" headings! Screenshots available upon request.

Also, there is another bug:
When I check a recurring task (f.e. weekly ev thu) which was overdue 8 days - it is not showing up yesterday but on the NEXT thu - which is not correct.

Hello,

we are aware of this issue and are working on it right now. Thank you for your reports and sorry for any inconvenience this issue has caused you.

@Michael,
an overdue recurring task will always be scheduled to the next occurrence counting from the day you've checked it off otherwise it will still be overdue.


Best regards,
David

The sort order of overdue tasks is still acting very strange, similar to the grouping described in the first post above on 8/17. Makes things very confusing.

Is there any update on when this issue might be resolved?

The random sorting of overdue tasks makes it very challenging to use this product.

Thank you.

Overdue tasks are now properly grouped by days overdue (thanks!)

But the order of days overdue on the "7 Days" view is odd:
4 days ago
3 days ago
2 days ago
today
tomorrow
6 days ago
7 days ago
8 days ago
...

Hello Jack,

this is the correct order, we've decided to allow users to see tasks that are a bit overdue (no longer than 5 days) at the top so you can catch-up to them, but still be able to see tasks due today/tomorrow. Anything overdue by 6+ days is listed at the bottom so it wont' push today's tasks to the very bottom of the list especially since it's overdue so long that it's most likely less important.


Best regards,
David

David,
Thanks, good to know.
Seems a little arbitrary since tasks at 6+ days would get dropped down below and might not be noticed, but I'll look for a way to customize the view.
