Reordering tasks

I'm trying to reorder the tasks in my project just by the drag and drop method, to see them in a specific order.  When I navigate away to another folder or project and then nav back to that project, the task list reverts and doesn't keep the reorder I just made.  Help?

Have you tried adding a number to the front of your tasks name.

Does this mean that there isn't a way to reorder by drag and drop? Having to number tasks that may need to be reordered many times defeats the purpose of using an automated solution.

@Geoffrey Hey, welcome to Wrike Community 🙂

When sorting tasks by priority in the List View, you can drag and drop tasks to change their priority: the closer a task is to the top of the list, the higher its priority. The order of tasks stays the same if you navigate to another folder or project and then get back 

Please let me know if that's what you were looking for 🙌

I am having this issue, as well. I have 43 tasks in my project section (no dates have yet been determined, just the task order). I created them in the correct order, and then they got rearranged. I went back, sorted by priority in Table View, and put them back in their proper order. When I navigate away and back again, they are once again out of order!

@Sara Hey, thanks for reaching out 🙂 

If you manually drag and drop tasks to reorder them by priority in the List View, the order will be there when you navigate away - just pick the sort by priority again and the order will be the same. I get the feeling that it might not have been the same for you when you navigated back to it because you didn't choose "by priority" again. Please let me know if that's not the case, we'll discuss it further 🙌

Apparently it's a known bug. I opened a Request Ticket and that was the update I received... hopefully something that is resolved soon! It breaks at 38 tasks, which isn't an unreasonable number :/

My ticket has been resolved and priority is now staying as I ordered. Yay!

If all tasks are given the same priority, but they need to be ordered, is it still not possible to drag and drop to change the order? Kind of a fundamental need. Aside from brute-forcing by prepending a number, how else can this be done?

Update: It looks like dragging/dropping does reorder, but it does not update the display. Refresh and it does show the update so it looks like there's a caching issue.

Is there a drag and drop option to put tasks into a specific order yet?  I tried to number them but task 20 is coming between task 2 and 3 and not after task 19.  That doesn't help what I am trying to accomplish.

Aaron Scott In the Table View (old or new) you can grab the row, using the numbered row on the left - it will turn into dots and you can drag and drop wherever in the schedule to reorder/prioritize it. Priority no longer takes numbering into account in the New Table View. Priority is based solely on last created now, which makes no sense to me, but that's what I learned when I opened a ticket on priority being all messed up. I still use Old Table View predominantly.

I just ran into this same issue. If you go to Classic Table as an option, the drag and drop works there. It wasn't working in the main one.

Hi Juan

Hope you are well.

I'm having the same issue.

In the table view, tasks are sorted alphabetically, but when I access the project directly, they appear in the correct order (how I created). Could you assist with this issue?

Many thanks,

Hi Mariana Ayroza, click on and you will see other options, then select Priority.

You can now re-order task as you want

Hi Pietro,

Thank you for your response. Adjusting the client to the "Priority" setting did resolve the issue. However, it also rearranged the order of the other projects in a way I did not intend. I'm aiming to change only this specific project's order. Is there a way to ensure the order remains as initially selected within the project (as shown in part 2 of the first image I shared)?

Hey Mariana Ayroza! Priority sorting allows you to manually sort your items in the order you want. So I would suggest sorting manually to get the order you want and it will pertain any time you switch to priority sorting. I hope this helps!
