    A go round would be to create a custom workflow.ย  If the above list is the right order, you could name it 1.Initiation, 2.Planning, 3.Execution, etc. and then sort by status. Use the numbers, because if you don't it will sort alphabetically.ย

    You could also use the priority sort option to do this! I just discovered this feature recently. In your task list, select the priority sort option, click on any task, and drag it where you want it to go! Just be careful not to drag a task on top of another one or it will become a subtask.

    Thank you guys for your valuable support and quick response...

    Anna, you right!ย 

    Using Sort "By Priority", allows me to drag any task and move up and down..

    Thank you!

    My pleasure, Marco! Another cool trick is that if you set up a dashboard widget with the priority sort option set, you can drag and drop straight from your dashboard!ย

    Marco, my team found that adding a prefix to each task allows us to consistently sort by Name. This could be a, b, c or 1, 2, 3 or 01, 02, 03 (if over 10 tasks). It is a bit of added work, but allows for consistency between List, Table and Gantt Chart Views.ย  I received this information from the community some time ago (I couldn't find the link).

    Wrike freaking sucks that if you want to do this you have to add a prefix to the name! So any changes mean you have to change the name of every task. Stupid.ย

    Hi Christopher Wilson, welcome to the Community!

    There are a couple of other suggestions on this thread - using custom workflows or sorting by priority and drag the tasks in the order you want. You can also create a separate Product Feedback post on this.

    Please let me know if you have any questions!ย
