Many of my perspectives show 30+ items and I would love a way to sort by priority (with more granularity than flagging).
I’ve been using “sort by duration” instead. 5m = high priority, 10m = medium, 15 = low. This works pretty well, although you cant view all durations on mobile.
The problem: an item with NO duration sits at the bottom of the list.
So when a new item goes to that perspective (based on its project or tag), if its duration-less, it sits below things that I’ve already decided are low priority! But often those new things are the highest priority!
I know I could just change my habits, be more strict about assigning duration when I tag the item, but that would greatly slow down inbox processing. Sort by tags is a mess when using more than one tag. I could use “sort by title” and add numbers (slow). I could use “sort by project order” and drag them around in project views (slow)…
FWIW, “sort by tag” works the opposite way: an untagged item will sit at the top of a list of tagged items. (Will sort by tag be improved in OF4 please?)
Is there any way, through plugins or hidden settings etc, to make an item with no duration sit at the top of a “sort by duration” perspective?
