I want to rank my tasks in the My Tasks view. One possibility would be to assign priority to tasks, and rank tasks according to priorities. Is there a way to do it? Thanks.
@Shengyou_Zeng - welcome to the forum! Great to have you.
Could you clarify what you mean by rank the tasks?
- You can click to the left of the task and drag a task or group of tasks (if you multiselect) up or down.
- You can create sections to group your tasks by urgency or importance. You can also, as you mentioned, use custom fields to assign priority.
- You can sort.
- And, if none of those work, you can create a custom field using text as the entry method and put a ranking in manually for each task.
Anyway, I’ll try and simplify my answer once I hear from you a little more clearly on what you mean by “ranking” and what you are trying to accomplish.
I was thinking of adding a custom field to set the priority, but custom fields can only be added to Projects, not to My Tasks, so that would require to add a custom field on each of your projects…
Another solution would be to create custom sections in your My Tasks, for example under “Today” you could create 3 new sections (P0, P1, P2) to organize your tasks for Today base on priorities! The example given in this post is a good illustration of how you can leverage sections to organize your My Tasks!
Thanks, Marie. I added ‘Priority’ as a custom to one of my projects, but it doesn’t show up in the My Tasks view available as a choice for sorting. Is there a process to make a custom field appear in My Tasks as a choice for sorting?
