+ Add Suggestion

Add "Sort by name" option to Task Actions


The current options in Task Actions include:

Sort by date
Sort by priority

Can you please add:

Sort by name

I often have similar tasks that begin with the same prefix and I would like to have the option of sorting them so that they appear next to each other.

+1 particularly important for heavy users with lots of projects (i.e. anyone who uses GTD). Can be a pain to have to reorder manually all the time.

It will be great, my project are clients and some times I can have more that 15, without alphabetical order it is hard to keep organize. It would be great if the project column could be organize in sections; for example, one that could be organized by name, and another section manually.

Another big vote; would be even better if I could resequence the "today" (or any search) result the way that we can now resequence projects

we've just introduced this feature. Now you can sort your task list by name using the gear icon in the upper-right corner of your task list in any project.

Thank you all for your suggestions, we hope you'll like this new feature. Any feedback is as always greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Much appreciation for the Sort by Name feature. Works great in most cases, except for hyperlinks in the item text. Right now an item like "MailTones":(http://mailtones.com/) is sorted to the top because of the " character and http://mailtones.com/ (MailTones) sorts in the H's because of the http instead of in the M's as expected. Try sorting a list of plain text items and hyperlinks in the same project.
