Default ordering of tasks


In Todoist it is possible to sort tasks in a project on priority. I'd like to have every project sort tasks on priority by default. Is that possible?

Tasks within Projects can be ordered by Due Date or Priority; the shortcut to sort by Due Date when in Project View is "s" and the shortcut to sort by Priority when in Project View is "p".

That being said, there is no 'persistent' sort order; if you add a Task after you pressing the shortcut, you will need to press the shortcut again in order to sort your task list.

I hope this answers your question?

It sure makes it a lot easier to have a single key for a shortcut. Close enough, so... thanks!

Having a setting for this to do this in the admin by default would make a heck of a lot more sense than a shortcut key. Loving todoist but this missing feature seems quite basic. I normally work 'top down' in deadline order on tasks and having to press S all the time is a little annoying.
