overdue in wrong order

I noticed that the overdue query is in the wrong order from the perspective of looking at something like "today, overdue" or "7 days, overdue".

What you get is

Yesterday
2 days ago
6 days ago
Today
Tomorrow


I would think it was go from oldest day to the furthest date out. It is really weird to follow it/read it in the current fashion.

Great! That was a quick turnaround. I've verified that it is *mostly* fixed. It appears though that if things are overdue more than 6 days, they appear at the bottom of the list.

- 3days ago
- 2 days ago
- yesterday
-today
-Saturday
- 7 days ago

David,

this is the correct default display:
- 5 days ago
- 4 days ago
- 3 days ago
- 2 days ago
- yesterday
- ...any other query results...
- 6 days ago
- 7 days ago
etc.

Tasks that are overdue by no more than 5 days are displayed on to so you can still catch up to them, but older tasks are at the bottom so that your today's tasks won't be pushed to the very bottom.


Best regards,
David

David,

That's very strange, unintuitive logic IMO, but if that's your design know that I know it, it's easy enough to live with.

Thanks again for the quick fix. Works great.

It is also very unintuitive to me. If it is way past due, it is more important to see and work on it, instead of putting on the bottom (to ignore).

Please reconsider this decision! A better option would be adjust display (spacing, font size) so today items are also visible in the page.
