Add newest items to top


Hi, when I add tasks to my inbox or to projects, either on the web or on the iphone I would like them to add to the top of the list, just like a new email would be added to the top of your email.

Is this possible? If not, can this please be implemented as it's very annoying!

Many thanks

Hi David,

In the web and desktop app, you can use the shortcut SHIFT+A and it will allow you to create a task on top. However,there's no way to do it yet in the iOS app. Please feel free to add it in the Votebox as a suggestion: https://todoist.com/Vote/.

Hi thanks for the suggestion.

Would it not be possible to add an option under ToDoist so that all tasks are added to the top by default across devices?

Hi David,

Though we don't have such an option for now, we'll certainly look into adding it in the future. We carefully choose which features and options are added to the app. We strive to find the balance between functionality and simplicity. The best avenue to voice out ideas is the Votebox. Though it's not the sole factor for determining which features to add next, we certainly value the feedback that's collected there.

Please add this setting. Crazy to not have it.

If you do add this, please make it *optional*, because I prefer not to have my tasks do this.

The vote box is closed now, but I would like to +1 this idea. I think it'd be ideal if it was an option to change the default behavior, rather than just a keyboard shortcut. It's a feature surprisingly lacking in all GTD apps I've used, and could differentiate you further from competition if you had it .. just sayin' ;)

Nozbe has this feature
I would vote for a default, option,too. Probably most people /either/ enter tasks one by one /or/ consider the most recent task as the most important and want to have it at the top of the list (me).

Please get this done.
Todoistmis great but not having this could force me to switch.
