I think it would be fantastic to add a “run rules now” button for projects and My Tasks. There have been times when I wish I could run rules on demand, such as when I just updated the due dates on a bunch of tasks. A “run rules now” option would save a lot of manual sorting in those moments, which are more frequent than you’d think (pre/post vacation, project rejiggering, massive reprioritization of projects or personal work, etc.)
I would also like to be able to run rules once during the day. Maybe this is a niche problem that only I’ve had, but multiple times, I have experienced project managers giving a previously undated task a due date of today or tomorrow, and then I missed it because the task was buried in Later (where all undated tasks go to wait for a due date or die), and the rules didn’t catch it – for instance, if the due date was today and it’s in Later, it’s not going to pop up in recently assigned because it had already been sorted. Then, at midnight it’ll be overdue, which means the new rules won’t promote it since it doesn’t fall into “due today” “due in 1 day” or any of the other autopromotion rule options.
