Is there a way to sort tasks in Alphabetical order and change to Assending or Decending?

HI @Melanie_Vaughan! Yes, simply use the “Alphabetical” filter to sort your task list as shown in this article: https://asana.com/guide/help/views/list#gl-recommended.

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:

The Alphabetical filter doesn’t show up on my view. Only None, Project, Due Date, Likes

Hi @Bridget_Walsh

I’ve just discovered that the alphabetical option is only available in a project, not in My Tasks or advanced search reports.

The only way I can see around it is to export My Tasks to csv, then filter.

thanks Mark. Most of the tasks I want to sort are in one project, so that’s a great solution. Thank you.

I need this option as well in “My Tasks” We precede all tasks with a company code. It would be nice to see all tasks for one client (unrelated projects) in order so that we can address them easily. Some of us may have 50-100 tasks and it is difficult to scroll through them all to find a needle in a haystack.

It’s great to be able to sort alphetically, but it doesn’t just sort all tasks - if tasks are separated by sections, the sections are just put into the alphabetical list as well.

for example
F section:
D task
H task
A Task
E section
P Task
K Task
M Task

becomes
A Task
D task
E section
F section:
H task
K Task
M Task
P Task

rather than

F section:
A Task
D task
H task
E section
K Task
M Task
P Task

I would be keen to know a workaround for this!
