Sorting by date in a project - subtasks?

Hi, happy newbie here.

When I look at my day, I frequently click on a project and sort by date to see what needs to be done. However, I notice that if a subtask is due 'today' it doesn't sort to the top. This can be dangerous for me if the task is collapsed and I don't realize that something needs to be done.

Is there a work-around for this?

PS: This could be solved by using a query = today + project=xxxx, but I see this is a feature request.

Hello Mark,

The sorting option within a project sorts by indent level. That means, all parent tasks will be sorted by date. Then, within each parent task, all sub-tasks on the same indent level will be sorted by date and so on.

The best way to make sure that you don't miss any task due today is simply by querying "today". You will see all tasks listed there regardless of their indent level and you'll also see the name of the project from which each tasks originates on the right side.

Best regards,

Thanks. I am loving this product and realize that some tradeoffs need to but made to keep the super clean design and easy functionality...but still, there needs to either be a way to sort by project within 'today' or build queries against projects. I have voted to that affect.
