Sort by due date doesn't take effect immediately for sub-projects

W

When I sort tasks in a parent/sub project hierarchy by pressing the "s" key, I see that the tasks in the parent project are sorted immediately, but not the ones in the subprojects. It is only after you "bring in" the subprojects by hovering the mouse button on the subproject that Todoist will recognize the subprojects and sort them, when the "s" key is pressed again. This becomes a pain when you have multiple subprojects and have to repeat it for all of the subprojects.

Hello W,

I can't reproduce this issue. Hitting the "s" key seems to instantly sort all tasks and all sub-tasks by date correctly at once.

Please try to log out, clear your browser's cache, reload the browser and log back in and if the issue persists, tell me - what browser are you using and can you reproduce this issue in another browser or a different project.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

I meant "sub-projects", not sub-tasks. As you said, the subtasks get sorted immediately. But not the tasks in a sub-"project". Create a parent project-sub project hierarchy, go to the parent project - which will display the sub projects as well - and re-sort by either date or priority. It will only sort the parent project. It's only after you somehow "activate" the sub-projects by hovering the mouse pointer over a subproject, that Todoist will sort the subproject when you press S or P again. It is easily reproducible, at least on my end, on Chrome.

W,

Thank you for clarifying and sorry for the misunderstanding. Indeed, when I access a parent project and also see its sub-projects, sorting gets broken.

I've passed it to the developers now and we'll look into it.


Best regards,
David
