When you’re looking at a view in Todoist like Today or a filter, you may wonder how the tasks are ordered. Here’s a quick overview of how tasks are sorted in each view:

Today and Next 7 days views

  • Due time > priority > task creation date and time > project ID > task ID
In these views, tasks can be rearranged if they have the same priority and due time.

Label views

  • Priority > due time and date > project order > task order within their project

Filter views

When using a filter without due date queries:

  • Priority > due time and date > project order > task order within their project

When using a filter with due date queries:

  • Due time > priority > task creation date and time > project ID > task ID

Project views

By default, tasks are shown in the order in which they were added. However, you can change the order by sorting a project or by manually dragging and dropping your tasks.

FAQ

Q: Can I sort tasks or change how tasks are grouped in each view?
