    This would be really useful for us!

     

    We have some subtasks as checklists in jobs that need to follow an order (but don't need the detail as in depth as dependencies) and can be difficult to read which task is next when they mix about!

    Hi Lizzie and Holly, thanks for the feedback! @Lizzie, that's right, the sorting order of subtasks in the task view is the order they were added, and I can see how it could be helpful to have the List View's sorting order carried over. @Holly, thanks for the additional info, great to hear from you! :)

    Hi,

     

    I second to Dan Hardy's request - it would be awesome to hide completed subtasks.

    Why? In our case, we have one parent task to track agendas for team weekly meetings. The agenda for each meeting is created as recurrent task, but it needs to be assigned manually to a parent task. Since the list of subtasks is long, it's difficult to add new ones.

    On the other hand - is it only me, or you really can't create a recurrent subtask?

    Indeed, this is important for us as well, given we review all projects with the team overall on a weekly basis and the order by alpha throws off the logic of how tasks need to take place in their chronological order...   In addition to LIST view, we would need to have this feature added to TABLE view as well.

    That feature is absolutely needed!! 

    We have 30 subtasks sometimes and it's crucial for the team to understand the right order!

     

    Please add this feature!

    It is essential that tasks be done in the right order, and it isn't always the order I think of them.  It is not appropriate for a list of tasks to be rearranged automatically because an edit is made to one of them.  It is cumbersome and unsophisticated for an entire list of subtasks to be renamed manually for ordering because one item needs to be moved or inserted.  Further, it is confusing currently because it appears that you can drag these tasks into the order in which they should be, but when I return to the main task after clicking off of it I find that the subtasks have again reverted to chronological order.  This is a pretty big problem for me and it would seem the solution has been halfway implemented already since the tasks can be dragged to order in the first place - they just don't stay.

    Absolutely agree! It's very confusing for a long list of subtasks to be out of order for both us & our client.

    Not having a sort function for sub-tasks is a real time waster - having to manually order things, after one has already set sub task due dates etc... where sub tasks could be easily sorted on date, title, due date, creation date, importance and a range of other factors. Cheers.

     Wrike has the capability to sort by title and the request by many (for years) is to include this option for subtasks.

    To be effective, is there a better way for users to request enhancements?  On this community board, the needs are acknowledged, but not fixed.  

    Another example is to "Expand All" in the List view.  Wrike has the capability in the Table view - please include this as an option in "List".  

    Thanks so much in your continued interest in improving Wrike!

    It is incredibly frustrating that you cannot sort subtasks by due date. 

    Does anyone have a work around?

    Hi Brittany Lerch, apologies for the delay in response here.

    One possible workaround is to utilise the sorting in List View. Subtasks can be sorted by due date in this view, so this could provide you with the sorting options that you need.

    At the moment, it is currently not possible to automatically sort sub-tasks in the Task view. If anything changes in regards to this, I'll be sure to pass it on to you.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!
