When I Press P or use the drop down menu sort by priority on a huge list, it is rearranging things in 6 different orders, cycling through 6 orders. What is going on? (None seem to be alphabetical or by order entered, I can't make any sense of it)

Hello Sean,

using the "p" key or the "sort by priority" option should sort the list based on the priority of each task from priority 1 at the top to priority 4 at the bottom. If a task contains sub-tasks, the parent task itself will be sorted according to its priority, but the sub-tasks will be sorted within the parent task by their own priorities.

Please clarify :
- What happens exactly when you use the "sort by priority" option? Are the task properly sorted by priority?
- What browser are you using?
- Does this issue also occur in a different browser?
- Are you accessing Todoist directly through the website or through a plugin (if so - which one)?

If could also be helpful if you would send a screenshot to david@doist.io

Best regards,

It's probably just a bug, now that I know it is not cycling through anything important I will not mess with it. Try pressing p on something with 75 tasks on it, most with heiarchical structures if you want to explore the bug further, until then, I have too much work to get done to bother with it.

Thanks, Sean
