Todoist disregards manual ordering of tasks
We have discussed this issue four months ago (I sent you several screenshots, check email for 07/25) and while things temporarily improved, we are back to square one.
PROBLEM: Ever since experiments with HTML5 and item reordering have begun, Todoist disregards manual order of tasks via drag-n-drop and doesn't properly synchronizes it between different machines.
EXAMPLE: Assume we have projects A and B, with tasks A1, A2, A3, and A4 and similar in B. Say, I manually order odd-first within each project, i.e. A1, A3 followed by A2, A4. Same for B. The tasks have same due date and priority. No labels are used.
I would expect the following:
a) When I switch from the project A or the project B to a combined view (such as Today or 7 Days) I will see tasks as follows: A1, A3, A2, A4, B1, B3, B2, B4 everything else being equal.
b) This order will be preserved when I load Todoist on another machine.
ACTUAL RESULTS: I constantly get things mixed up such as A1, B3, B4, A2, A3... Not only the order of the tasks isn't preserved in a combined view, even the ordering of projects is broken there. To add insult to an injury, whatever ordering I do on machine Home is completely lost once I come to machine Work, and so I have to repeat the whole routine there too...
Without knowing how Todoist implements this functionality in the backend, it's hard to say what the solution should be, though I can see at least 2-3 fairly efficient implementations.
Could you please look into this? This Christmas tree of mixed up projects and tasks is unbearable. I'm seriously considering closing my account at this point as I'm spending more time restoring order of things than actually managing them.
