Sort a project by custom fields


#1

I’m looking to sort a project by a 2 fields. For example I want to sort the list by due date and by a custom field.
Any solution?

Hi Aron,

Let’s get creative! When you sort by custom field in project view, as you know, we can only view one custom field at a time. But, you could conduct an advanced search to see everything you’re looking for! I suggest that you use the desired custom fields on your project. Then, conduct an advanced search for tasks with that custom field. Sort the search results by due date and voila! You’ve got all tasks with that custom field sorted by due date.

Let me know if you have questions,
Alexis


Filter "My Tasks" by priority

Are complex searches “and/or” on the roadmap?

Adding to akrasna’s comment, it would be really helpful to be able to search based on multiple criteria. I’d love to search for all tasks with two tags or a task that has one tag but not another.

Adding on to this, I would also love to be able to sort by custom fields when I’ve done an advanced search…

Hi @Christine, What a coincidence–just a few hours ago I offered a solution to this exact question posed in another thread:

It does require a free extension but perhaps of use to you.
