Request: Task Sorting - "Group By" and "Sort By" Functionality

Hi Wrike,

I'm requesting the ability to sort tasks by both grouping and sorting. By that I mean the ability to group tasks by one criteria (status for example), and then sort the tasks within those groups by another criteria (date, title, etc).

Currently I can "sort" the tasks by status, date, title etc (though really its grouping), but then within those groups, it defaults sorts by date, and this cannot be changed.

Since I know you guys love use cases, here's mine: with the project I'm working on now I have a list of items by title that I need to reconcile with completed tasks by title within Wrike. So I can sort it in Wrike by status (completed) and then I'm all over the place because the titles are jumbled, or I can sort by title, and then I'm all over the place because the statuses are jumbled. Enabling both grouping and sorting would both cut the time I spend on this significantly, it would also reduce the likelihood of error.

For reference, this would mirror basic file sorting functionality found in Windows.

 

Thanks for listening!

This could be done in reports. although the interface lakes the same functions as the primary space. You have to open a floating window to update a tasks status in reports.

My Use Case: I built my own task list - but I do not want to sort it either by prority or by date but instead want to sort it first by date and then by priority. That gives me a clear list for my self organization and let's me move tasks from today to tomorrow while at the same time knowing how many high priority tasks I already have waiting for me tomorrow...
