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.

Is there seriously no "sort by due date"? If not, please add that asap. This is desperately needed.
Need to sort by due date ASAP!
This can be done in Charts, group by, Due date.
I would of thought this functionality was a basic need for a project planner. Really odd that its been not set up this way from the start. It is sooo annoying and would be incredibly useful. please fix asap!
Yes! This is much needed!
Absolutely agree that this is needed.

Agreed, sort by due/start date would be an obvious option - that isn't there!

Yes! Need sort by due date ASAP... thanks!
Having added my tasks in date order, I found they were listed from newest at the top. In this case that was the one I added last. I can't see this will be useable if I need to enter the final task first just to get them in the correct order.
A simple sort would fix this..
this is so annoying, when I try to set my bucket in chronological order,it jumps all over the board...
Under Charts, then tasks, when you sort by due date it cuts off task if longer than a few words. Could you wrap text. Also could you add the person assigned here too. Also when you do a sort in board by name, could you put these in order by due date? Thanks!
I guess you could have a bucket for each week of a project and then sort by buckets with current functionality, but that's tedious and it steals away the usefulness of the categorization you might otherwise do with buckets.
It would also be really helpful to sort by modified date as well. This helps track work.

I take this to mean sorting the "buckets" on the planner board view. Yes, very much needed.

I need this feature - Sort by Due date and Sort by Start date please
Sorting tasks by due date is a complete no-brainer. I was quite shocked after entering 30 tasks that there was no way to sort them at all. What the heck? How is that useful? And you can flag them, but can't sort or group by flag. Wow.
Would be nice to be able to sort "My Tasks" by due date.
