As always, we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback in the comments below :slight_smile:


Thanks, it’s great that you add new feature improvements, but could you also work on simple and essential features like better sorting (chose the sort order, multiple column ordering)?

It seems that you are one of the only tools that do not offer this basic feature. Do I have a better solution than exporting my list to CSV and work from an excel spreadsheet?


Also wondering if the team can update a feature to be able to collapse all tasks. Seems like a basic QoL update for the product that all your clients would use.

This ‘solution’ provided 2 years ago shouldn’t be the only way to do this. How to collapse all tasks
