Ability to multi-sort My Tasks by multiple fields

PLEASE PUSH THIS.

It is so helpful in projects. Such a shame the functionality isn’t in my tasks

Chiming in. I have custom fields I want to be able to sort by as well (e.g. project category). Can’t believe multi-sort isn’t already a feature.

Please prioritize this! It’s available for projects, so it should also be available in My Tasks.

PLEASE make this happen. It’s such a pain that I have set up these individual Boards but they can’t individually be sorted in different ways.

Adding my vote too. I live in My Task section but because of this precise lack of feature I have flirted with an idea of adding all assigned tasks to personal project to use this feature, but too labour intensive and non-intuitive to do so.

@Marie As requested from you here is the tread on March 22nd, this thread is about multi-sorting in My Tasks.
What is the process to vote for this feature, that it gets implemented quickly?
Can’t be rocket science as it is just sorting another list!!!

Please add this feature, it’s a pain not to have this.

I have just come back to Asana after using ClickUp for the past two years. This is because Asana is more user friendly for my team to use, and so I am not expecting it to be as advanced as ClickUp in terms of its functionality. But I am amazed that despite Asana’s ‘My Tasks’ view having both ‘Group By’ and ‘Sort’ buttons, the Sort button greys out when you Group by anything other than ‘Custom Sections’!

For my workflow I want to group by Due Date and then sort by Priority so the top priority items are at the top of the list for today.

Grateful if this can be progressed ASAP - it has been over a year since it was first raised.

I would love to group by project and then sort by due dates within those sections.

Seconding this. It is a major downside to using Asana for task tracking - multiple sorts and filters are essential functionality in Notion and Todoist, and I haven’t seen any updates from the Asana team on when or if this will be introduced to all users. I would seriously love an update on when we can expect this ability, because it is important enough that I would look at other apps to switch to that have it.

Hi, just adding my vote to this as well. I’ve tried using rules to achieve the result I’m looking for, but no joy. Being able to sort by due date, and then priority would be extremely useful.

I have tried ‘Grouping’ by due date, but then you lose the ability to sort.

My current solution is to group by ‘Custom sections’, for which I’ve created similar due date headings like Overdue, Today, This Week, Next Week, etc. and then sort by due date. I’ve tried to add rules to move items between the sections, using ‘due date approaching’ as a trigger, but it only moves them daily around midnight.

Like most here… looking for a way to multi-sort the My Tasks view. I use the kanban view and then sort by priority. But really, I would love to sort columns by due date, and then priority.

That way, just because something is low priority but due today, it doesn’t get lost at the bottom of the list.

This is standard with platforms like Smartsheet and Monday.com, so I found it pretty surprising Asana is still missing this basic.

All,

Love the “My Tasks” feature.

Would be GREAT to be able to sort them as projects are now sorted - i.e. with multiple sorts, in specific priority.

For example, FIRST by project, SECOND by date, THIRD by priority, etc.

Any work in the pipeline for this sort of thing?

Thanks!

@Joe6,

I’ve merged your post into an existing thread where you can click the title to scroll to the top and vote by clicking the purple Vote button.

Thanks,

Larry

Great to see that this has now been responded to by Asana! See here: Multi-filtering on my tasks list, board and calendar views!

Agreed, would love to have multi-sort. They’ve recently implemented multi-filter, but for my use case, I want to be able to quickly look at my entire list and see what the next most important thing I need to do is. If I have to go in and change filters all the time, I’ll spend more time managing my tasks than actually doing them.

That link has nothing to do with this request - filtering and sorting are entirely different actions. Unfortunately, there’s still no solution for sorting by multiple columns.

Additionally, I still have yet to see an explanation of how asana handles sorting within the same value i.e. if you have a priority field with multiple tasks set to “high”, how will are they sorted amongst themselves?

This is mission critical. Please prioritize this feature. No reason we should not have the same functionality on a MY TASKS as individual projects.

Hi Keith. I appreciate that it’s not ideal, but at least I can now do the key thing that I wanted, which is to sort the the tasks that are due today by priority. So I Filter by Due Date specifically those due today, and then Group By: Priority.

But yes, it is bizarre that if you Group By anything other than Custom Sections, the Sort button is greyed out…

I want to be able to sort my tasks by date and then by priority within those date sections. This is pretty basic to do list type stuff, but when I try it in my tasks page, it just seems to be either or? I can either have my page sectioned by priority or by date. I can create custom sections and get around it but then that requires pretty manual sorting on my part or waiting until the midnight automations run.

Am I missing something?
