Hello Alex,

If you click on a task's name to enter edit mode, there are two arrow icons on the right side of the task input field - one to indent and the other one to unindent it.

Also, you can use the keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl+RightArrow and Ctrl+LeftArrow to indent/unindent a task (or project).


Best regards,
David

OK thanks. Now I've just figured out I have no control over the sort order of today's tasks - is that correct?

Hello Alex,

By default, tasks on the "today" list are sorted primarily by due time, then by priority and the rest is grouped by project. You have limited control over this order, you can drag & drop tasks on this list, but this will affect the general position of tasks with the same property. For example - if you put tasks with priority 3 at the top, above tasks with priority 1, new tasks with !p3 will be added to the top as well.


Best regards,
David

So, how do we indent/outdent on a MacBook? Ctrl+RightArrow and Ctrl+LeftArrow have OS functions which Todoist does not override.

Hello Matt,

Please make sure that you're adding the task while you're inside a project and use the "Add task" option there or edit a task while in project view and if it still doesn't work - try Command+Arrows.

Alternatively, you can always use the icons on the right side of the task input field or, click and hold the handle used to reorder tasks and while you're holding it, use the number keys 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 to set this task's indent level.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

Sorry, I was unclear. I'm trying to indent/outdent a project in the project list, not tasks/subtasks.

Matt,

In that case, please right-click on the project, choose "Edit project" and then use the arrow icons on the right side of the project input field.


Best regards,
David

Ah, thanks! I seem to recall either looking that up before, or possibly asking that question before - getting re-acquainted after not using todoist for a while. (not todoist in particular - been avoiding all task apps for some time, and find I need one again)

Todoist is still the best task app out there for Android, IMO.
