Automatic sorting by due date in Table View

Submitting on behalf of David Chaffin, Senior Producer, Video Media, Academic Partnerships

In the Table view, it would be FANTASTIC if the tasks would automatically sort by Due Date. Currently it always defaults to sort alphabetically, and I have to click on the “Due” column heading every single time I view a table to see the tasks in chronological order. (I cannot figure out why anyone would ever need to see an alphabetically list of tasks. Am I right?! )

I completely agree with that statement. In fact, I would even suggest another option that would remember the sorting instead of setting it as a default. I can think of the following things as being remembered from the last visit:

  • Column Sorting
  • Expanded/Collapsed Subtasks
  • Column Width
  • Filters

Agreed - our team & client is extremely frustrated with not being able to default by date & due dates are the issue at hand - not alphabetical order of tasks! Please work on this.

Yes - this idea should be applied globally. System needs to remember how I set my sorting, column sizes, etc and reproduce that every time I hit a page or view where I've updated these settings. Otherwise, every time I open a project or folder, I am resorting and resizing columns (I work on a small screen frequently).  Thats several clicks every time I want to look at a project.

I would also like the option to leave parent tasks where they were placed. I often have to number the parent tasks so large groups of tasks aren't completely reordered when I sort by date. Parent tasks also default to alphabetical order rather than the order they were written, which again is useful to no one..
