Please open the project you want sorted, and at the top right side of the Project, there will be a gear icon, from there you can sort by name, priority or date.

This is not working in Firefox.

I can't confirm that. I've just tried to sort tasks within a project in Firefox 26.0 and it seems to work correctly.

Please try to log out, clear FF's cache and Todoist's offline data, reload the browser and log back in to see if the issue persists. If it does, please tell me:
- Does it affect all 3 sort options?
- Do you have tasks and sub-tasks and if so - does it not work for all or just parent tasks or just sub-tasks?
- Does it not work in just one project or all?

Best regards,

You are right , I can sort tasks, but I want to sort projects, f.e. in alphabetical order.

If I click, left of the project there appears some sort of menu (horizontal lines) but I can not open that menu, that is what I mean.

Thank you for clarifying - that's actually not possible, you can't sort projects in Todoist right now. At least not automatically. You can manually reorder them and that's what the 3-line icon is for. When you hover over a project you can click on this icon to grab and drag & drop the project somewhere else.

Best regards,

Seems like a sort on projects would be a no-brainer. Something you guys need to work on

Yes I agree with Larry, please working on sorting the Projects alphabetically. I just started and I have 15 projects. I can easily see this getting up to 50 or so soon. Thank you

Same here. In great need of sorting PROJECTS(not tasks) in either alphabetical or numerical order. Do you have this alternative now ?

Brandnoob here... first thing I needed a to do list to do... sort projects alpha... can't do it??? Literally, the first thing I needed to do, and can't do it. My project list is going to become huge - over 100 within the first week. I guess I'll need to look elsewhere. Thanks for the trial.

This would seem a popular request. Please can you look into this!

I agree. It is a significant issue.

Any update on sorting lists? Should be able to sort on any value we choose (due date, alpha, date entered even). Should be available in tasks, project, filters- all options. I paid $29/yr. for this app because I love it, but the lack of sorting decreases it's usefulness significantly and if not fixed, I may not renew next year.

I agree, sorting projects alphabetically is a big deal to me too.
