Thanks

Love this idea. Very key when first setting up Todoist. Also make it possible (option) to lock the labels to prevent creating nonsensical labels due to mistyping would be a great feature.

let people choose how to sort labels. e.g. nice solution to sort labels manually.

There could be an option to use alphabetic sort or manual sort. I prefer alphabetic approach.

This is an essential feature for people using GTD (see http://www.thesecretweapon.org/).

I recognize that there is a reasonable workaround. Create a query with the labels in the desired order, and then bookmark the resulting URL, to create something close to the view we are seeking:

https://chrome.todoist.com/app?v=xxx#agenda/(@1-now,__@2-next,__@3-soon,__@4-later,__@5-someday)

In addition to being a pain in the ass, this doesn't adjust to new labels, so it's a mediocre workaround at best.

I would like to be able to sort them manually really, with alphabetically being the default prior to manual override.

Sorting them by quantity of tasks within creates the list of labels to switch order far too much.

Thanks!

Y U No Sort Labels!

You would think that this is a basic tenet of organisation.

Yeah, I agree - I use lots of labels, and it is painful to see them in a wild order. If I had known, I could have put them in the order I wanted them to appear. However, I'm not sure that would work. I added a new label a little while ago, and it came up in the middle of the label list.
