May I request a best estimate on when this functionality may be available. Its one of the top requested features and something which many would like to know in their evaluation of TD. I understand that you may not want to set expectations, in which case perhaps just an indication of which quarter of the year..
This is a very complicated feature to add to Toodledo and we haven't fully figured out how it would work without making the interface overly confusing. It's near the top of our to-do list, and thats the best indication I can give, sorry.
Even "basic" sequencing for top-level tasks would be awesome and VERY helpful.
How about just adding a Task "sequence" field and having this be one of the choices for sort order?
I for one wouldn't mind having to put a "1, 2, 3", etc into the sequence field to get basic sort/prioritizing.
This is how other systems like Franklin Covey handled sequencing and basic 'ordering' of task lists.. Their system used a letter (A, B, or C) for priority (corresponding to high, medium and low), and then a number after it - like, "A1, A2, B1, B2, B3", etc.
Seems like all it would take for a basic solution here would be having a field we could put something like that into. Or, just put "1, 2, 3" in.
The downside is that wouldn't be particularly elegant - ie: there'd be no drag and drop to re-sequence. But it would be an excellent "stop gap" for those of us who need basic task sequencing.
This would be a HUGE improvement for those of us who's task lists have lots of things on it every day, as even ordering by priority really isn't enough to be able to put a basic order of "do this first, THEN this", etc to the list.
