Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. The default sorting of tasks on the today view is:
1. By due time
2. By priority
3. Grouped by project
So only tasks that don't have a due time or a priority will be grouped by project. We will consider adding a sort option to this list in the future and you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/192/
I have this same question.
I see that my today tasks are grouped by projects ( I don't use due time and they are all P4 ), but these projects are displayed in a random order.
I would have thought that showing the project groups alphabetically is more common sense than a votable feature ! :)
Thank you for your feedback. You're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox and we may consider adding such option in the future.
Sorting the project groups by name may not be the best solution for everyone - some users may prefer custom sorting, sorting by the way the projects are listed on the left side or other options.
My today tasks have no due time and no priority, and yet are not sorted by project. Or rather, it looks like the tasks are clustered together for three of the projects, but the fourth project's tasks are scattered all over the list. Has the program been changed since your last response so that it no longer sorts by project?
Technically, this shouldn't happen, but we did notice some sorting issue in the date-based view and they should hopefully no longer occur in the new version we'll release next week, though it's a complex problem so unfortunately we can't say for sure until it's actually out on all accounts as we've had difficulties identifying the source of it.
Thanks, I'll see how it looks after the update.
There was a request along the same lines for iOS.
I think the photo from Wunderlist embedded in that request shows why this feature will be useful.
(Not that I want to go back to Wunderlist just for that.)
Please allow the list to be sorted by project. I am a paying customer and am considering moving back to Toodledo for that feature, as I tend to print my list...
