I don’t have due dates on most of my tasks but I need them prioritized because some are more urgent than others. In the My Tasks screen I sorted them vertically by importance, but:
There is no way to sort in the widget
It does not display the already-sorted-sequence from My tasks
Have you thought about utilizing tags for your tasks? You can create, High, Medium, and Low priority tags and are able to sort them in the My Tasks view
@Mike_Tammaro, nope I haven’t. I was under the impression that the Home screen was my “launchpad” of sorts. I currently try to use it to jot down quick notes via the “Private notepad” widget and manage my day/tasks via the “My priorities” widget where my tasks appear. Having to jump to another page throughout the day is undesired overhead I was looking to avoid.
Completely understand, in my experience, having a well-structured My Tasks page will create an even better Home page
I bet you’re right. I’ll explore that page a bit more.
Let me know if you need further assistance on how to setup My Tasks most efficiently.
My recommendation is to utilize different sections such as:
And then adding in rules that move your tasks to the appropriate section
