Customize order of list and Smart List tabs

danielcabreratoyos Pro says:

It would be great if the list tabs can be reorder and not only in alphabetical order.

I have a "Today' "Next week" and "This week" smart list and they get lost in the sea of smart lists. I could archive the other lists to hide them but I work with them on a daily basis. It would be awesome if tasks can be reordered as well. I'm using Todoist more often now for those two reasons alone.

Could be helpful with some kind of rearranging feature. Smartlist grow as wildfire.

I would like to see this feature as well. I can do it now by prefixing my smart list names with specific patterns like "~01~" to sort correctly, but I'd rather it be configurable.

You can do this through the bit better rtm script or addon.

Totally agree. Wonder why devs haven't done it so far.
It's nothing complicated, you just need to add arrows to list settings, make them work and change SQL query displaying the tabs.

Would finally be able to stop prepending my list names with characters such as ~@#$% !!

LOL Adam. Agreed! +1
Thinking about how to implement this possibly:

1. Under Settings/Lists segregate active lists from inactive (archived) ones. Like have the active ones up top, above a divider.

2. Make each active list "draggable" to whichever order one would like.

3. Have the tabs show in that order on the Tasks home page.

I'm sure it seems simpler than it is, but is that a high level of effort to code?

It's not only terribly annoying to users like me who must preface tabs with letters or numbers to get order they want but it's a really bad user experience. On mobile, the nonsense preface letters/numbers hide much of the actual tab name in sidebar. Sure you can use browser extensions on desktop to change order but that doesn't carry over to order on mobile.

+1 I'm using Japanese language to name lists, so the order of lists do not make sense at all. They are neither in Roman alphabetical order nor in Japanese Hiragana/Kanji character order!

FYI - 'a bit better rtm' plugin for Chrome and Firefox adds this functionality and much more. I would still like this to be part of the standard interface though.
