Constantly have to manually resort task list

R

I currently have one of my projects sorted by date. Any time a change is made (task added, task due date added, changed, etc.), I have to manually resort the list to see the tasks in the proper order. Is this normal behavior?

that's how mine behaves -- wish there were an "always sort in date order" setting

Hello,

If you're within a project, you can hit the "s" key to instantly reorder all tasks by date or the "p" key to reorder them by priority.


Best regards,

How about adding a sort by label option?

This makes no sense from a user perspective; if it is important enough for a certain list/project to be sorted by date, and you guys add the option technically to have it sorted by date, why should we re-sort the list EACH AND EVERY TIME WE ADD JUST 1 TASK OR MAKE 1 CHANGE??!?? Why bother having the option at all if it does not persist in the database? I can understand technically if it re-sorted when the page refreshed but to have to do it all the time? Yes, it's easy to just press "s" but seriously, after a while this is starting to become keyboard option creep: too many keys/special combos to remember to "quickly" do things that should not have to be done in the first place or should be done automatically once the setting is chosen.

I guess the point is I remember you folks last year were said you were hesitant to make a dedicated "Next" list on top like the Inbox list because you said that the strength of Todoist is that it allowed for maximum customization; well, there is no point to maximizing user customization if that customization does not automatically persist across app use ...
