Reordering tasks and folders in GANTT view

I have a project that has tasks and some folders of tasks. The folders do not represent a single task with subtasks, and they don't represent subprojects.

 

So I have them in a folder. I have two folders in the project, and about a dozen tasks.

 

I can move the tasks around by dragging, but I can't move the folders. They are at the bottom and not even ordered by name or start date.

 

What am I missing?

Hi Bruce, it's likely showing these Folders at the bottom because they're not scheduled (start and end date). It's hard to tell without seeing the set-up but can you try setting the start and end date. The Folders will fall above the relevant tasks it's associated with.

Let me know how that works for you and if you're still having an issue I'll raise with the Support Team to take a closer look 👍

Hi Stephen - I also cant seem to figure out the order for the folders. Its not by start date of tasks contained within it because I have moved older tasks into a newly created folder and it still lies at the bottom of the parent folder. Really need some help with this!

I am having the same problem--the folders in gantt view are not ordering themselves by date of task and cannot be reordered.  What is the solution?

Hi @Sheri, sorry for the long reply here!

There is no manual sorting for folders and projects on the Gannt chart at the moment, you can only drag and drop tasks. However, if you change the order your tasks are in in your Table View, it will change your Gannt chart. You can set them in ascending or descending order.

Hope this helped! Let me know if you have any questions!

This sorting of folder in the Gannt view is also important to me. I have named my folders alphabetically so that they appear in Table View in my desired order. However, the Gannt chart continues to order the folders by the date they were created, with the most recently created folder at the bottom of the chart. Has there been any added functionality here since Sep 2019?
