Numbered sublists

caltechgirl says:
Can you help me with this? I have three checklists that each have ~30 numbered subtasks. On the desktop, the numbers display correctly 1-30. On the android app, the numbering is 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 20, 21, 22...

How do I correct this? Its not useful as a check list if the numbers aren't in order.

Hi caltechgirl,
Thanks for getting in touch.

I've added this to our list to investigate. Sorry for the inconvenience.

In the meantime, you can use drag and drop sorting to order the tasks manually. That should work consistently through the apps.

Let me know if I can help with anything else in the meantime!

Unless I'm doing it wrong, drag and drop does not appear to work. I've tried it from the Android list in both the initial mode and the edit mode. I can slide right to complete it and slide left to postpone it, that's it. In the edit mode, can I select a subtask to complete it. Nothing seems to allow me to reorder.

You may need to change the set sort in the list or view before you can reorder the tasks.

(You can change this by editing the list as linked above.)

Once your list or view is set to sort by drag and drop, when you press the Edit button at the top right you'll see the "three lines" drag handles appear on the right of each task.

If you are ever making these changes in the web/desktop app you can use these steps to drag and drop.

Let me know if I can help with anything else!

01, 02, 03 etc does the trick (sorry for double-posting).
