Sorting

MR

Same problem on Android and Windows app.

How do I sort tasks, so that they are sorted by due date. At this time, no matter which app I use - No matter how I display tasks (filters, projects, etc..) the order of the tasks displays is the order in which tasks were entered.

Makes it very hard to find that specific task which is coming due..

Hi Ray,

Within projects, tasks are added at the bottom. You can use the wrench icon at the top or use s for date, p for priority to sort it by that. Of course, a new task are always added at the bottom, so that would need to be done again. We hope we can improve how that works in future updates.

The today view and date based views are automatically sorted by date and then priority. The Android app will sync the sorting from the web version.

Regards,
Brendon

Hello Brendon.

Why does the app auto sort based on priority? While I understand it may seem like the right thing to do, I believe it should not do this automatically. Everything I have learnt about being productive tells me to make a plan at the start of the day, and then execute that plan. So for example I have "do my daily exercise" as priority 1, but I am not going to do it until I get home from work today. So I want to sort "today" in there order I am going to do the tasks. Can I make a request to have this sort order 'user selectable'

Matt,

You can add this as a suggestion in our Votebox, there may already be one related to this.

We will consider adding more options in the future.

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi Brendon,

I am also finding the sort function restrictive with regards to only sorting based on priority. I think it would make more sense to sort by multiple criteria e.g. first by project, then by priority, then by due date. Projects you work on in the evening will therefore not appear at the top of your list by default despite them being priority one. This would eliminate the need to sort tasks manually on the today view.
