I agree that this would be very useful.

Sorting by Date and Priority is one of the key features I use on the website. Would be great to see it in the iPhone app.

Um, isn't sorting tasks by due date kinda the whole purpose of a task management app? Shouldn't sorting tasks by due date then priority just be the default?

Please implement this across iOS applications.

I'd also find this useful.

Love todoist but this is, for me, its major shortcoming. I have setup a certain system of naming my todo's (ex = research: subject x / read: book y / Mail: person z...) and sorting them by name groups them together within my lists... Seems like a pretty straightforward feature to implement, no?

Would be VERY much appreciated!

We will of course consider adding sorting options to our mobile apps in future updates, but for now, as a workaround, we recommend to use labels in situations as the one you've described.

@research, @read and @mail could be labels attached to these tasks and you could then access a certain label to view tasks with it from all projects at once.

Best regards,

Hey David,

Thanks for the advice but it won't solve my problem, I already use labels in a slightly different manner... Anyhow, sorting (by name, priority, ...) would be a much appreciated feature on the iphone :)

I would also like to see better sorting options ACROSS THE WHOLE APP!

I would love a "Sort" button to appear on each page (or as a drop down from the top bar...) and let me choose how to sort and group my tasks - no matter what view, label view or filter I am using.

So, for example, if I run a filter - I would like to be able to sort and group the results however I want, not always by the default. The way I want to view my tasks varies depending on any number of factors and being constrained to one way to view them is very restrictive.

I often want to sort or view tasks grouped by:

Todoist does a beautiful job with this by DATE but the features for the other options are non-existent. Please add sorting features!

You can add my vote that we need sorting on the mobile app.

This seems like a basic feature of any task management program. I was very surprised to learn that this wasn't an option. I should have researched this before paying for a premium subscription, as I would not have done so if I had known that there was no way to sort tasks by due date or any other criteria when you are within the app.

This would be a great feature on the iOS version (it's so useful on the web-based version!).

Come on people. Just moved from Remember The Milk, and Project list presentation on iPhone isn't very useable.
