    Most of our team uses List View as their primaryย preference. ย So much so, that we go ahead and set it to be the Default View for all Projects. ย I have run into this same need on a few occasions, too. ย Can'tย rememberย now what it was I was trying to get from it. ย It wouldn't be often we would want Descending, but it would be nice to have sometimes.ย

    I'd like to see the ascending and descending filter options on dates too in the list view or is there a place where we can set it in the folder or project settings?

    Hi all, thanks for this idea and input. It's very useful to understand how people use the views they prefer when the product Team are reviewing enhancements.

    This has been shared with the Product Team already so if there any update on this in the future we'll be sure to share with you here. Thanks for posting!

    Yes!ย  I would like to see Dates ascending and descending!ย  We have years worth of projects and I am constantly scrolling when sorted by date or name.ย ย

    I would love to have the capability to filter dashboard widgets in ascending and descending order. Obviously this is a must have for dates, but I'd also like to see it by status.

    Here's Why

    • By Date: Projects can become backlogged and less relevant as time goes on. Sure, we'll still need to see it, but it's just not logical to have them at the top of the list for this reason.
    • By Status: For this, I would probably filter out completed tasks, but to each their own. Project status, regardless of due date, tells you which tasks are CURRENTLYย being pushed along. Another Dashboard widget can take care of new/incoming tasks.ย 

    Note: The ascending/ descending order capability should be availableย for every filter, but if I had to pick my top two, it would be the above reasons.

    I'd also like to see the sorting options improved for both list view and dashboards. I use dashboards most of the time, but if you change one, it makes sense to change the other since you can go back and forth between them.

    In addition to having more control over sort direction as is mentioned here, having more sort field options would also be a welcome change. For example, it would be wonderful to be able to sort by a custom field.

    Hi all, thank you so much for your suggestions.

    I can see this idea has reached the 60 vote threshold ๐Ÿ‘ and I'm working with the relevant team to understand what status should be applied here right now.ย 


    In the meantime, workarounds give the team a great insight into how you use Wrike and how you achieve what you need without this functionality. And as always it helps other members here who may be facing the same problem and don't et have a workaround. Sharing is caring.

    Keep an eye on the title of this post in the coming days for the first roadmap update ๐Ÿ‘

    @all, the team have suggested Not Planned as the status here. This simply means that the team does not have this kind of work scoped this year. It does not mean it will never happen.ย 

    During future enhancement discussions, this will be reviewed and if added to the roadmap we'll update you here.

    For now, voting, and hearing your use-cases and what you're doing now adds huge value to the discussions mentioned above.

    Thank you!

    Would also like to see this A-Z, Z-A sorting feature added.ย  Hopefully this gets on the roadmap soon.
