Sort by Due Date - ascending or descending option

Asana has recently changed the sorting on projects, which has completely ruined the way we use one of our projects. I now have to scroll down through 700+ tasks to see the most recently added tasks. WHY WHY WHY can’t it just be an option for Ascending or Descending sort? Why does Asana make it only work one way?!?!

Hi @Jubal_Routley,

Have a look at this post.

Could you check if this helps?


Hi @Vaibhav_Khatri,
Thank you for the suggestion. I should note that we are adding tasks to this project via the API and which seems to add them to the bottom of the list (using List layout). If there was a way for the API to use the same add task function as the top button that might resolve our issue.

Hi @Jubal_Routley, thanks for sharing your feedback with us. We already have a thread in our #productfeedback category on this topic so I’ve gone ahead and merge your post with the main thread to centralize feedback. I’ll make sure to share any updates as soon as we have any information about this feature.

Hi there - is there a solution for the ascending / descending date range for searching for completed tasks?

Having to scroll through hundreds of old tasks just to find something completed a few weeks back is terrible.

Please help! :slight_smile:

This is such a basic/core/critical feature, that I’m shocked it hasn’t even been implemented yet (after more than 2 years from the original request).

In general, any sorting feature should have an ascending/descending option. So you can… sort.

Boards and lists are supposed to give us a quick overview of the information. And in a lot of cases (really, most of them) we all want to see the last/upcoming tickets, not the ones from months or years ago.

We have tools to create tickets from scratch, to connect tickets to other boards, to create subtasks and follow-up tasks… But still, not a proper/basic way to sort all of these? :persevere:

Please, implement this as soon as possible. It is basic and critical for our daily work. :pray:
