Reprioritizing tasks

I entered a couple of tasks out of order on the table.  I went to List and rearranged them in order there, but they did not rearrange on the table. I cannot change ID numbers.  I can not add custom fields to add a new ID so that I can manually rearrange the tasks - no "+" appears at the far right on my page to add new columns.

How is this done!

Hi Michael, thanks a lot for leaving a comment! The Table View sorts by columns that you select, and doesn't have a priority sorting option at the moment. However, you can add Custom Fields and sort by them too, check out our article about Custom Fields to learn more about this functionality. 
 
That said, there is an existing request on our Community about being able to sort by priority in Table View, and I would highly appreciate if you could add your vote there by adding "+" under Enable Sorting of Tasks inside Table View by Priority post. Happy to answer any other questions! :)

Hi Michael, I wanted to jump in and add one more note. Custom Fields are available on Business and Enterprise accounts, which is why you may not be able to see the "+" icon. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Guys,

What we ended up doing was updating the priority of the tasks via the API according to their status.

We set our views by default to By Priority, and when we change the status of a task, it's priority is updated by the API script.

Happy to share the wisdom or even implement it for people.

Hi Tim, thanks for commenting here! This sounds like a really interesting setup to achieve through API. I wanted to let you know that we now have a dedicated API Community section, and it would be amazing if you could share some tips on implementing this with other users. Excited to learn about your setup there! :)
