I did happen to find the solution you mentioned above while waiting for a reply, but it’s only a partial solution and there is a critical step missing in the information. In order to even move my tasks around between sections, I first had to change the setting in My Tasks to sort by None - which isn’t intuitive to me at all. In fact, Today, Upcoming, and Later are time-based designations, so I don’t get that setting at all.
What’s most disappointing is that after spending time to change the setting (as above), then organize each of my tasks into the 3 sections, I then had to organize them further by due date, as it doesn’t appear there’s any way to have them appear in order of date when the Today, Upcoming, and Later sections are applied. Again, super counterintuitive.
What I need is to see my tasks broken down by long-range priority - just like the Today, Upcoming, and Later sections allow - but to also be able to prioritize them within each section. I’ve done that manually, but I noticed that as soon as I checked off a recurring Today task as done, it would appear in another section automatically, but totally out of order. Items for three weeks from now would be mixed in with items due tomorrow and items due next week. There didn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the organization of tasks within a section.
I’d really love a way to organize by date automatically from within those three time-based sections, or at least an option to select for that view. It doesn’t seem sensible to have time-based divisions that I can’t also organize by date and time for each task. Yes, again, I can move them all around manually, but then it’s far more work than to just view all the tasks in the due date sorted list. I just want to see them broken out so the view isn’t cluttered or overwhelming.
I’d love it if the Asana team could add this functionality in the near future.
