    I really like this idea, Ted. The team will review it when researching possible enhancements to the Calendar. Once I have any info I'll be sure to keep you updated 👍

    Stephen, thank you so much for helping push this. This would be game-changing for us. I will say, if sorting by folder name isn't a possibility, then sorting alphabetically by task name, or sorting manually would also be great alternatives. Thanks again!

    hey @ted have you found any solves in the meantime? Our social team wants to use the calendar function for social posts and need to sort by time of day being posted. They are super concerned about this. LMK if you have a hack. thanks!

    @Nicole, we tried a few different workarounds. For example, we even pre-built blank tasks as placeholders in advance, so they would appear in the correct order on the calendars. Alas, this didn't work, because if we ever needed to change the order or add a new slot, it made all of that upfront work obsolete, since the tasks are sorted by date created in the "calendar" view.

    For tasks that we need to see in chronological order, we've abandoned the "calendar" view entirely, and reverted to using the "report" or "dashboard" views in Wrike. We put a timestamp as a prefix in the task title (e.g. "08:45 Task Name"), and sort by title. While it's not optimal because it's not in the "calendar" view, this has served as a workaround to help us communicate these sorts of tasks in chronological order.

    Still, it would be awesome if the sorting rules for tasks in calendars were consistent with that of reports and dashboards.
