Sort tasks by Due date
Thanks for your feedback!
With due date options in the Filter menu, and the ability to group tasks by due date category, we’re hoping that this will help Planner users find and organize upcoming dates and deadlines.
We understand there is still an ask for sorting tasks within an existing grouping, please continue to use this thread to share feedback on this.
The Planner Team
Being able to sort completed tasks by completion date within a bucket would be nice as well.
If a task is complete, it should not show as "late" when looking at the "by Due Date" view. Some options to consider:
1) Having a separate bucket for "completed" at the end (so Open, late tasks are still first) or having the view IGNORE completed tasks
2) OR you can have the process of "completing" a task clear the due date. Not all users will like that and will want to keep the history of due vs closed, but that is fine for my workflows and reporting.
Another person in need of this capability to sort within a bucket
I need to be able to sort by due date within existing buckets!!!!!!

Please implement this soon! Manual sorting with drag and drop is very cumbersome and once you have more than 5 or 10 tasks in a bucket, it becomes a real nightmare.
The reason why users have user-defined buckets instead of the pre-defined ones (due date, category, progress etc.) is because they are too generic and need further refinement.
That's why we need sorting functionality of our own buckets: By name, by due date, by priority at least.
Thanks, you're going in the right direction with the Teams App!

This is vital to the usefulness of Planner as a planning tool :)

Please hurry up and get this sort added.

Filtering by due sate is useful, but being able to see tasks sorted in their respective buckets and also sorted by due date would be extremely helpful!
Tom Ellis commented
As mentioned by many other people, I use the buckets to distribute tasks and ideally want each bucket to be sorted by due date.
Planner really has no excuse not to be as good, if not better than the free version of Asana!

I use buckets to make primary assignees for tasks which is needed. However, within a bucket, I need to be able to sort tasks by due date. Please add this option.
In my opinion it is absolutely necessary to sort all tasks in one bucket by due date. Please consider this in the next update.
i use the buckets to break out pieces of a project but as we add pieces to this i need the to be sorted by due date!! this is a must!!!!

It would be really useful to be able to sort tasks by date.
We definitely need the ability to sort the projects under buckets and assigned to by due date.

Typical Microsoft. Put something out half-done and ignore it the rest of the way. This ask has been out there for four years.
This needs a sort by. Period. No one does tasks in alphabetical order. !!!
This needs a sort by. Period. No one does tasks in alphabetical order. Please add a sort by so this is usable while staying grouped by what I want to group it by.

Could you also add "sort by start date"? That would be AWESOME!!!
Wesley Smith commented
Sorting by due date, alphabetical, complete date or creation date would be awesome.
