Label order isn't preserved on sync

I tried using color coded labels to encode priorities, areas of work, and type of activity. So, you have three labels for every task entry. Ideally, I would like to have them in some specific order (say, priority, area, activity).

Unfortunately, it appears that upon a sync the order is re-arranged. In some cases activity label will be left last while in others it will be pushed to the front.

Can labels order be preserved?

Hi Nick,

Are you referring to organizing your tasks within a task list (Today, or within the Project) based on labels? Labels within a list like that, or on the left hand menu can not be sorted in anyway possible. Labels on the left menu are sorted by the amount of tasks they have.

We will consider adding more options in future updates. Feel free to add it to our votebox. http://todoist.com/Vote/
