Sort order is randomly broken in Today's View

The sorting order of tasks appears to be randomly broken after Todoist refreshes itself, sometimes mixing tasks from unrelated projects.

Assume we have projects A, B, C and tasks A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, C1 in that order. After the refresh happens the order may become A1, B2, C1, A3, B2, C2 or anything similar.

No respect for the original manual order. No respect for tasks' projects. Almost no respect for priorities...

This issue existed circa 2012 but it appeared to have been fixed and didn't show up much until about a week or two ago. Now every day I have to manually re-order tasks at least 2-3 times after Todoist syncs.

Hi Nick,

Please clarify, you are referring to the 7 Days view when this error occurs correct? We are aware of a similar issue that occurs normally with the Today view but have not been successful reproducing it.

Though, date based views are automatically sorted, so any manual sorted while on those views will not be kept, but of course they are sorted by date and priority. Are you saying this is incorrect as well?
