Notes lost ordering/sequence

P

Hi,

The notes are back now, but they lost the order they were added in. E.g. I have a task with 30 notes attached to it (with status updates). Now they are all out of order, which makes it impossible to track what was going on. Please fix (i.e. sort them by date).

Thanks,
pxm255

Hello,

Could you please send us ( david@doist.io and brendon@doist.io ) a screenshot showing the timestamps of the notes> You can cover the content or instead of sending a screenhot, copy/paste the times of adding these notes.


Best regards,
David

Hi David and Brendon,

I've removed the content of the notes, replacing it with '<note>'. The task has 30 notes in total (in the order as they appear now which looks completely random):

The issue is not only with this task, it affects pretty much all tasks with notes that I have. Sent it to your emails as well.

Thanks,

Please try to log out, clear your browser's cache and Todoist's offline data, reload the browser and log back in and let me know if it won't help and I'll pass it to the developers.


Best regards,

Tried all that, the issue is still there. If you have a task with a bunch of notes that were added over a period of a few months, you'll see it yourself too. Please pass it to the developers.

Thanks,

After browsing through many tasks from months ago, I couldn't find any affected by this, but I did found some that were added quite recently so yes, there's definitely something wrong here, I'm notifying the developers right now.


Best regards,
David

Pxm255,

This issue has now been fixed, all your notes will be ordered correctly (you may need to log out and back in to see the changes, though).


Best regards,
David

I confirm, the issue is fixed now, the notes are sorted by date. Thanks a lot!

Could you please give us the option of ordering notes in ascending or descending order? I prefer my newest notes on top. I suppose there is no way to currently do this now?

Thank you!!

Hi Stewart,

Yes, there's no option to do this right now. You can vote for it here: https://todoist.com/Vote/show/5862/.
