1) Sort only selected tasks; 2) Sort tasks only within a section


Request is to allow sorting of selected tasks (currently only all tasks may be sorted. In addition, sorting a section’s tasks would be helpful too.

Several posts request this, so adding here at the suggestion of @Michael_A. (Hope that’s ok, @Mary_Conquest. Vote here!

Recent related thread is quoted below, but I see there’s also part of this request mentioned in Sort tasks by Due Date WITHIN Sections along with references there as well.

Sort by two fields (secondary sort)
Sorting only selected tasks

Thank you! Please vote if you’d like this feature :slight_smile:


Would be great to offer a two-step sort on projects and tasks to allow flexibility.

We could use:
a) By Date then numerically (1, 2, 3)
b) By Date then alphabetical
c) Open tasks by date, then closed tasks by date (currently completed tasks are first when date sorted)


Would be great to have - in the “Change View” menu - an option to sort by two fields, first one, then the other. Having sections and sorting by one field is good for many use cases, but definitely not all.

Airtable implements this functionality very nicely using the “Group” setting for anyone who is familiar.


Hey @Khalil_Omer!

Thanks for the great product feedback, I have added your thread to this one about the same feature, I hope you don’t mind!

If you would like, you can add a vote here if you’d like to see this feature in the future.

Have a great Tuesday :grinning:


More custom sorting features would be very helpful!


I agree that it would be very helpful to have more flexible sorting options, especially within sections.


This is a critically important function requirement for the company i outsource to and is a basis for deciding whether to continue to use Asana or an alternate solution that has this feature.
