If I sort tasks by…

1. Due date
2. Priority
3. Star

…they are grouped under due date headers and sub-sorted by Priority and Star

My question is…once the tasks are sorted to the third level of Star, what decides the Starred tasks’ listing precedence at that point if they all have the same priority?

I’m doing this under a saved search and cannot seem to figure the precedence.

I found where Toodledo had responded to this question elsewhere in the past that after the third level of sort, the precedence would be random. However, after rearranging the sort criteria and then changing back, and after signing out and back in to Toodledo, it appears my idea of random may be different from Toodledo's because the tasks' order remains the same. There has to be some logic to the precedence.

To be more precise I should say that the 4th sort criteria is "undefined" instead of "random". I think the order will be in reverse chronological order of when the task was created, but Im not sure. It may be consistent from page to page, but I wouldn't count on it.
