        Please add a Priority to the Task. This could be High - Med Low. Or a scale like 1-10 or even 1-100.
        Labels are limited and being used for categorization. Due date is not necessarily a priority. This is a high priority need for this product. Thanks

        Using labels is limited by the fact the number of labels is also limited. We have multiple plans where we are using the labels for other things. The absence of this after so long is shocking, not even a comment from the Team!

        I use labels, but there is no way to sort by labels, is there? Sorting by labels would allow them to be better used for priority setting. Might be an easy way to get this function available ASAP. For me too, thanks.

        Shocking there is no priority option. This is crucial to tasks (!!!), especially people who work in teams (literal teams).

        The only current way to prioritize tasks that our company has found effective is by using the Labels (our company is trying to be MS Planner based). The labels leave a little color next to the task and we have been using the colors to label what the task priority is. Although, a better solution can definitely be conjured. MS Planner is looking to be great! Just needs a few more tweaks.

        Using labels is an obvious option however they are not really very visual. Having the option to even change the entire tag colour based on or in addition to the label would be a great feature.

        Even something as simple as allowing us to pick the color associated with a task would be helpful.

        It is mandatory when you want to organize your activities. Maybe anterioty tasks option should be added to this priority option

        It's almost as if Microsoft looked at the best of the best similar tools on the market and chose the 6 most basic features and built a whole product around it. Not sure how they expect anyone to use this tool seriously when its such a limited, basic Fischer-price level tool.

        I can't even change the tags/label colours and names to fill this glaring gap.
