Sorting in Asana

Would be awesome to be able to group tasks in my task by day and by week. Rather that Today/Updcoming/Later.

I think the mentality with the New Tasks / Today / Upcoming / Later sections is to help you prioritize your work.

With the exception of tasks in ‘New Tasks’ which are sorted by the order in which they were created / assigned to you, I believe it will show tasks in the other sections by due date.

Hi @Randall and welcome to the Forum! :grinning:

There is already a thread on this topic so I’ve gone ahead and merge your post to consolidate feedback!

I hope it’s OK.

Have a great day!:grinning:

It’s been over 2 years since the original request. Any reason why the most voted requests are that old and still not completed?

Is there a timeline on when the secondary sorting function will be added @Natalia Would be great to be able to let our team know when they can expect this.

+1 - sort by section then date would be a huge level up!

+1 here. This is a popular issue that has been pending for over two years. Can you please impliment this functionality.

Sorting by Team would be another option quite useful to us. Currently when tasks are sorted by Project in a saved search, the Team names are shown but the projects are listed in alphabetical order (!). It would be more useful if they were grouped by Team.

please just add sorting on the section level and make my life beautiful :slight_smile:

It is pure insanity Asana does not allow this function. I mean, this is basic level stuff here guys.

Adding my voice here. I rely on Asana heavily for my job and this lack of feature REALLY slows me down. Please add it! I’ve taken to drag sorting in the unsorted view because I want this functionality do much, but it’s a silly ridiculous approach.

I want to look at the incomplete tasks for the whole company. I want to group tasks by Assignee, and within each Assignee I want those tasks to be in due date order.

Currently, there is no way to do this. When I sort by assignee the tasks are in no logical order - it makes no sense!

I think this would be a great feature, @Chris_Wyatt. I was just discussing this with someone else in another thread who wanted to sort by project and also due date. It would be so handy to be able to sort by more than one filter.

I hope you don’t mind but I’ve changed the category of this thread to Product Feedback, and people will be able to vote on it as a potential new feature.

Hey @Mark_Hudson I was just wondering if there was any movement on this feature request. It’s something we’d like as well!

Hi @Cobi_Druxerman

I’m not sure if it’s something Asana has on its roadmap at the moment, but if you haven’t already, you can vote for the feature at the top of this thread.

Here’s @Alexis’ original explanation of how the product feedback process works:

i just tried to do this today with a saved report. group by assignee and sort each by due date. all the tasks under each assignee are currently in a random order and there is no way to sort them when grouped by assignee.

after nearly 2 years from the start of this thread, maybe there is little hope of getting this resolved?

Having multiple options to sort by would be super helpful. I spend so much time reorganizing our boards and lists just to get things into a better order for the team.

Lists views
Ineed the ability to sort items within their sections.
For example, we have a list view project that is set up with sections for each of the Sprints we are working on for the quarter. If I sort the list on a Priority field, everything gets moved out of the setions made for each sprint. I want to be able to sort items by the field and keep them in their sections.

For Board view
When you are in the task details (of a task on the board) and change which column the task is in, it shows up in random places in that column. Sometimes at the top, sometimes at the bottom, other times in the middle.
I then have to manually resort that column.

I’m a brand new Asana user and ended up here because I couldn’t figure out how to sort within sections. It’s a huge bummer to see that users have been requesting this feature for over 2 1/2 years with no update from Asana. Our team was getting ready to buy a premium subscription, but without this basic functionality we may need to look elsewhere.
