    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.

    Cheers,

    The Planner Team

        Organise or filter bucket by due date, start date, assigned person, date created, name of task ascending or descending.

        In addition to being able to filter/sort within a bucket/task group by due date, being able to pin a task to the top of the pile would also be pretty useful for critical tasks that you don't want buried under lesser tasks down the stack.

        I’ve had to result to using 1 - / 2 - / 3 - when naming tasks so my folks know the proper order to complete tasks - can we please get sticky sorting adding to my selection is always remembered to to sort tasks based on due date?

        Hi there - I really like Planner, but am really struggling (as other comments) with the fact that all tasks do not automatically go into date order and are really clunky to move around on the desktop.

        Also that very often there seems to be an issue with saving things and the only way to resolve this seems to be to shut Planner down and open it again, but I then have to make sure I copy and paste info which is annoying. Please can you tell me when these things are going to be resolved?

        Thank you

        I saw a query concerning this issue from April of 2017, and I'm truly disappointed that this has not yet been addressed. Using the group all task does not help me address tasks within a bucket if I'm looking for, say, something due on a weekend, or the absence of a task within a bucket. I agree with the many others who would like the default sort within a bucket to be by date, as well.

        It would be nice if all the tasks were automatically sorted by due date within their respective buckets. Then when you scroll vertically in a bucket, you know you're going in the order that the tasks need to be completed. Otherwise, every time you add a task, you have to drag and drop it into the correct chronological spot within the bucket, which is a pain.

        It is critical that the buckets sort by due date. I have many tasks I am working on at any given time. It is challenging to know what to work on next. My next due task may be at the bottom of a long list.

        There is a new need to add more options on "due date" buckets to split Future (e.g. Next Month, Next Quarter) or split task by week/month/quarter.

        Also enable sorting within buckets.

        Please make it so we can sort buckets by due date! This is a strong need for organization and intuitive use.

        Please make it so we can sort buckets by due date, with so many tasks assigned it can be really hard to keep up

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Due date is very helpful but it just makes two buckets - This week and Future -
        The future should be customizable to have Quarters or Months

        please please please - how can you expect any real adoption if you have to manually sort?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add the sorting within the bucket feature. This would help tremendously

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm a little disappointed that when you sort by due date, there is a column for "late" even if you don't have any late tasks. It pushes all the buckets to the right unnecessarily. If you have late tasks, it makes sense, but not if you don't. Also...why are completed tasks showing up in the "late" bucket? They aren't late...they're done and so shouldn't even show up at all unless someone wants to review completed tasks.
