Making ToDoist Agenda friendly


I would like to use Todoist as my personal daily AGENDA - eveything I need to do, prioritised and in the right order for things to happen everyday

When I add tasks during the day, I usually add them (chiefly for tomorrow). The following day when I wake up I order my agenda and tasks for the day.

Here I sort out those that need to be done later days, times that certain tasks specifically need to be done, and then those "in between" tasks that need to be done but that I can't say - will be done at 10am on Dec 16.

I order them using the manual order, but everytime it syncs with my iphone those tasks assigned a specific time jump to the front.


I have task 1 at 8am and task 6 at 12 noon. The other 5 tasks are manually ordered between task 1 and task 6 so that I can do them between 8am and 12:00 noon.

when todoist syncs with my iphone however, tasks 1 and task 6 are listed at the top while task 2-5 are at the bottom because they haven't been assigned a time

I want Todoist to please remove the automatic litsting at the top those tasks assigned with a time and maintain the order I did manually on my pc when it syncs.

please can you help me how to address this problem?

many thanks

Hello Udo,

Unfortunately, right now Todoist will always move tasks that have a time to the top of any date-based list on all platforms. We will consider changing this behavior in future updates and you're welcome to add a request for such change to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote_iOS/

Please note that this only affects date-based views, if you go to any project, tasks within this project can be reordered however you wish and the order will remain in this view.

Best regards,
