Bug: Task lists revert to default view when switching between organization and workspace


I have both an organization and a workspace. In both versions, my preferred view for tasks is by incomplete task, sorted by project. In the new version, when I switch back and forth it defaults back to an unsorted list of incomplete projects so I have to then reset my view options, every single time. This was never an issue before. I’m curious if anyone else is having this issue and if there’s a way I can make this setting stay permanent as it’s frustrating to have to customize every time I go back and forth (which is many times a day).

Default Sort For My Tasks
Default Sort For My Tasks
Bug: Switching workspaces myTasks don't show today, upcomming & later
Cannot save "My Tasks" view for everyone on my team
Remember the filter view! It doesn't stick when I navigate away & come back

Correction: defaults to an unsorted list of incomplete tasks not projects.


Welcome to the Community Forum @Elise_Weeks and thanks for reporting this issue! This is actually a bug our Development team is currently working on! I’ll be in touch as soon as I get confirmation that this is resolved!


Something changed on the website in the past few weeks. Whenever I change workspaces, it reverts to sorting by Priority, and if I select Sort By Due Date, the “Save View For Everyone” link disables.

Remember sort option for MyTasks?

Hi @Robert_Haasdyk and thanks for your report. This is actually a bug our team is currently working on; we have another thread on this specific topic, so I have moved your post to this other thread :slight_smile:


When I select a filter view, I’d like it to stay that way until I change it to another filter.

For instance, I have a project in list-view. For this particular project the most important thing is to filter by due-date. I don’t need any other view. Therefore after I’ve chosen to filter that way, I want it to stay that way – I want it to stick – until I decide to change it to another filter. Does this make sense?


Hi @Matthew_Maes, we already have a thread on this topic, so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post. This is a bug our team is currently working on, have a look above :slight_smile:


Thank you so much, that would be wonderful!


I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, but I have my “My Tasks” view filtered for incomplete tasks, by project. I have also selected the “save view for everyone” option. Unfortunately, whenever someone from my team uses “My Tasks”, the view is set to “none”.

My teammates are required to manually change the view each time they go to “My Tasks” as it always reverts to “none”. Personally, I don’t have this problem. My view always defaults to being sorted by Project, and the setting indicates that I have set this for everyone:

I have tried changing this setting multiple times to give it a kick-start, and have cleared browser caches etc but have had no luck. How can I ensure that my colleagues see their “My Tasks” by Project as the default view?
