    Here’s one for the wish list.

    It would be good for planning which tasks one wants to do next if we could reorder them by drag and drop.

    Currently they are always sorted by some property but perhaps we could have a mode where sort is not active and this reordering is. Or alternatively that we have another column that is keeping track of this order. So either implement as a new view or a new property to sort by.

    I would want each task group to have its own order. If you drag a task to another task group then it would go to the top of the list or the bottom of the list (make it an option). Similarly if you add a new task to a group it would go to the top or bottom of the list.

    When showing all task groups together there should be another order that has nothing to do with the order the tasks have in their task groups.

    I hope this is understandable. It would be such a useful function. What do you think?

    One suggestion would be to take one of the user fields and use it as a “Task Order” field, with a number 1..9. You can then sort on that field when you need to.
