Where I can order my task by the 'natural' order ?


I have write some task and after taht I have order it by priority to check what I have to do to day. Now I want to reorder it in the 'natural' order of creation. I have look for an order by 'id' or by 'create date' but there is nothing like that ...

So where i can order my task by the 'natural' order ? (by 'id' in db, or by 'create date')

I wonder the same thing. To me it seems like the "sort" functions don't only change the view, but the actual order of the list. This is also reflected by what gets send to the Todoist server when you change the sort order. It's a list with all the project's ids, new position, and new ident.

Unfortunately, there's not way to revert back the order of your tasks within a project if they have been sorted by priority, date or name. Our sort options do indeed permanently change the order of tasks within a project.

That said, if you want to check which tasks you have to scheduled for today, please use the "Today" option on the left - this list shows all tasks due today from all project and it's being sorted automatically by time and priority. This list will not affect the order of your tasks inside any project.

Best regards,

But my task don't have due date, juste priority (and they may change on the day), so the "Today" pannel don't show anythings.

Thanks for your answer,
Best regards,
