Home page displayed in odd order

U

When I use od, tod, tom in the search box the activities come out in the following order

5 days ago
xxxxx

Today
xxxxxx

Tomorrow
xxxxxx

7days ago
xxxxxxx

8days ago
xxxxxxx

I know I should not have activities 8 days old (I have been away), But I would expect them at the top of the page!!

Hello Andrew,

this is a feature which we've implemented in order to show you some overdue task (no longer than 5 days overdue) and yet still keep an overview on today's tasks.

Putting all overdue tasks at the top would push today's tasks at the very bottom. Slightly overdue tasks might be important and are displayed at the top, but if you don't complete a task overdue by more than 5 days, we're putting it at the bottom as it might not be that significant if it's still not complete.

Still, thank you very much for your feedback, we will consider changing this feature in the future and you're welcome to add your vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/27/


Best regards,
David

I see your logic, but for someone who has been on leave for a week, I would like to see whats late and then move them to today.

Maybe I am just too over anxious about forgetting something

I understand. Please note that overdue tasks always change the color of the alert box showing how many tasks are due. Normally, it's black, but if there's just 1 overdue task, it turns red.

Once it does, you can always just query "od" to see only overdue tasks.


Best regards,
David
