You can reorder your projects by hovering over a project's name and then using the handle which will show up on its left side.
Unfortunately, you can't reorder labels, they're always automatically sorted by the amount of tasks which have this label.
Can I order projects on my devices (iPhone or iPad), or just on a computer? online?
Reordering projects is available on the iOS app too. To do so, please tap on "Projects" and then on the pencil icon in the top-right corner. This will allow you to perform various actions incl. deleting projects, editing them, but also reordering using the handle icon in the right side of each project. Once you done, tap on the check mark (which replaced the pencil) to exit edit mode.
The option to reorder labels according to 1) number of tasks associated and 2) alphabetically, would be great.
I just paid for the premium service. I'm thinking about switching over to Todoist, but I'm disappointed that I can not re-order labels in the same way as I can re-order projects. Also, I wish I could next labels. I like to have a label called, "errands," then nested under it I have "home depot" and "grocery store." Is this something that might change in the future. It seems natural that projects, labels and filters would all be sortable in the same way. . .
would also really enjoy the ability to reorder labels and have nested as suggested above by Doc Harrill
I agree with Jon, (+1)
However I would like to see the labels revamped into tags (that's kind of what they really are), they are the strength of Todoist. Having ordered and nested tags would be the ideal solution. Many of my project task have multiple tags of their own.
Some Project have their own set of tags, it would be nice to have displayed in an orderly way instead of based on popularity.
Reordering labels would be a great feature to add. I like seeing the order based on the count of tasks also, but having the option to reorder would be a good feature.
I am satisfied with the way labels work. I find it useful in fact. However, the addition of a reordering option seems useful too.
+1 for an option to manually reorder labels from a new premium convert!
+1 - while I like the order by number of tasks view of labels for looking at trends and such, when I'm managing labels it's also useful to have them in alpha order.
+1 for nesting - I am like many others, using nested labels much as how I use nested projects and tasks, as a way to visually group. That's especially true with the labels that I use as contexts.
+1 because Votebox is caput. Nesting Labels would be great!
+1 for reordering and nesting of labels.
+1 for the option to order and nest labels
Nesting of labels would allow them to work much more like Contexts in the GTD framework. Any idea if this will become a feature?
+1 on being able to order labels
This is back to "projects" they can be indented or made into a sub projects. I use the sub-projects to stick ideas that I want to use but do not clutter my work flow. Usually none of the tasks in a sub-project folder have time or date
agree with all said above that we need to re-order labels.
Another vote for re-ordering and nesting labels functionality
Re-order labels manually please. Thanks
I would very much value being able to order labels manually as well.
Thank you, ToDoist team, for considering this feature. My impression from the ToDoist support boards is that you often hear more criticism than gratitude, and I'll take this opportunity to express my appreciation for ToDoist. It works pretty well for me, at a reasonable price. I also appreciate your obviously taking time to consider customer requests.
It's my impression from reading your many responses that you take these requests seriously, even when you cannot, or choose not, to implement them. Thank you!
I would really like the ability to reorder the labels manually.
+1 on reordering labels - all the above suggestions.
+1 on reordering labels
+1 for reordering and nesting of labels
C'mon guys, this is just a simple programming fix. Please include re-ordering label option!
+1 Re-ordering labels.. any idea if and when?
Please include re-ordering label option!
This thread is now 18 months old. What is the chance :-/ they are listening?
Never give up hope that the cry of the masses will eventually be heard and something done to resolve!...+1 to re-ordering labels.
+1 for Re-ordering labels .. nesting labels may lead to further complexity, but at least being able to group labels would be nice
another premium user for re-ordering labels...
BTW: todoist sorts labels in somehow random way. I know the first rule is to sort by number of tasks assigned to label, but the second order should be alphabetical, so users would work around it but naming labels using numbers at the beginnning of the task name. However, it does not work that way :/
+1 for reordeing labels. I really, really miss this. And I'm not alone ;-)
Thx Todoist Team!
A workaround I found is to create a filter per label, so then in the filter view you can order them. Pretty neat on my side, at least to gather my context labels @home, @office...
What I've notice though, is that you can order labels in the iOS app!
I found anyway that the iOS app design and ergonomy is close to perfection in comparison of the other plateforms (Web, OSX, Chrome).
I hope to see someday soon the possibility to bulk edit tasks (including setting labels please), or sort the labels to your taste, into the other apps.
Please make the Web and and/or the OSX app as awesome as the Todoist for Ipad.
Also the OSX app, does not fully work offline, which he's pretty though.
Some room for improvements.
Otherwise I'm so grateful for the awesome product that Todoist is.
Keep up the good work :)
+1 for reodering labels
I'll just add another +1 here. Really need to be able to reorder.
