If you find that your project has become a little disorganized, it might be time to sort it so you can find tasks more easily.

You can sort the tasks in your projects by date, by priority or by name. If it’s a shared project, you can sort by who’s assigned to the task. Here’s a summary of how each sort works:

Sort by date: Sort your tasks by how soon they are due, from soonest to farthest away.

Sort by priority: Sort your tasks by priority, from highest priority to lowest.

Sort by name: Sort your tasks by name, from A to Z.

Sorting by name only works for tasks that use letters of the modern English alphabet. Letters such as å, ä, ö, æ, and ø are currently not supported in sorting. Languages like Japanese that use logographs like Kanji (漢字) will not properly sort at this time.

Sort by responsible (shared projects only): Sort the tasks by who’s assigned to the task, in alphabetical order of their names. 

Once you sort your tasks, you will not be able to restore your previous task order, so use it with care. However, you will have one short chance to undo the action using the pop up at the bottom of your screen right after you sort.
