How can I manually sort the items?

MS

When I use for example the 7 days view and I change the priority of tasks there is no way to sort the view (priority) - and it is not being updated when I change the view and return to it.

Hello Michael,

please clarify:
- You go to the 7 days view.
- You right-click on a task with no priority and choose a new priority for it.
- You go to a project and then back to the 7 days view and the prioritized task is not at the top (for this day)?

If so, please tell me:
- Did you use Ctrl+F5 while in the 7 days view to force-reload it?
- Can you reproduce this issue in at least 2 different browsers (if so - which ones)?
- Does logging out, clearing the cache and offline storage data solve this issue?


Best regards,
David

Hello, David!
Yes:
I choose the 7 days view
I choose the little option-wheel of a task, changed an EXISTING priority
went to a project
went back to 7 days view and the task with the changed priority is NOT in a sorted order
this happens with Firefox 14.0.1 and with Chrome

Logging off and logging in resolved it - but that is not very satisfying...

Regards,
Michael

Michael,

please tell me - does using Ctrl+F5 (or only F5) to reload the 7 days view solve this issue?

I'm using FF on Mac - I dont know how to use Ctrl-F5.
F5 did not solve the issue.

Michael,

on a Mac, this should be Command+Shift+R, but that's no longer necessary as I've been able to reproduce all situations in which this issue occurs and have passed it to the developers.

Thank you very much for your report and sorry for any inconvenience this issue might have caused you.

For now, as a workaround, to avoid clearing the cache and offline storage, please try to change the current version number in the URL from v=56 to v=55 and press Enter. You will immediately be forwarded back to the v=56 version, but in the process, the old cache will be invalidated and the proper sort will be displayed.


Best regards,
David

I saw You updated the version - but I found the items are still UNSORTED!

the view 7 days shows:
- first the tasks with a due time
- then priority 3 tasks
- then priority 2 tasks
- then priority 4 tasks

and there's still no method to sort them manually...

Hello Michael,

sorting tasks which have due times is indeed not possible. As for the priority sorting issue - does changing the version number to v=58 which will automatically redirect you back to the latest v=59 version solve this issue?

If not, does logging out, clearing the cache and offline data, help?

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this problem. By default, tasks with no due times are sorted by priority on the "7 days" view, unless they are moved manually in which case they maintain the manual sort regardless of priority.


Best regards,
David

Hello, David!

I checked it with a second todoist account that I use:
Sorting of tasks with no due dates in the 7 days view DOES NOT WORK!!
Neither cache clearing, logging off or changing the version number in the url solved the problem!

Michael,

please take a look at these videos showing my attempts of reproducing this issue.

Firefox:
http://screencast.com/t/2Ojf0pqAx

Chrome:
http://screencast.com/t/l26bzaOoF8Ay

I've repeated this test in other browsers as well as with different Todoist accounts (free and Premium). Each time, the sort order has been maintained on the 7 days list.


Best regards,
David

What I mean is NOT shifting items up or down. I mean clicking on the wheel, changing the PRIORITY and then clicking again on "7 days" to refresh the view. Result: as I said before:

Tasks ar NOT sorted after priority. P3 is BEFORE P2!!!!

Michael

Hello Michael,

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. However, I can't reproduce this issue by changing priority either. Here's a short video, please confirm if these are the steps triggering this issue on your account:
http://screencast.com/t/sncLnlZnN (in Firefox 14.0.1)

Note - using the right-click menu is the same as the gear-icon menu.

There is an issue which we're currently working on that changes the default priority sort if such tasks have been manually reordered at least once. After that, if you've put a p3 task before p2 at any time, they will be sorted this way in the future.

Please try to manually change the order of the prioritized tasks (p1, p2, p3, p4) and then add a couple of test tasks with different priorities and try to reproduce this issue and let us know if they will then sort properly after changing priorities and refreshing the view.


Best regards,
David
