- To see tasks from descendant Subfolders and Subprojects: click the menu button in the List View's upper right-hand corner and select “Show Tasks from Subfolders”.
Regular and External Users can drag and drop tasks to change their priority, Collaborators cannot.

When you sort tasks by importance, tasks whose importance is set to “high” are listed first, followed by tasks with a “normal” importance, and then tasks with “low” importance are listed last.
