Unique priority

ward.bergmans says:
Problem: I’ve got many tasks. Every time I have to select a new task, I’ve got to look through my whole task list to decide what to do next. This takes too much time.

Solution: I want to be able to give every task a unique priority. That way I can sort my tasks at a certain time, and for the rest of the time I know which task has the highest priority (so I don’t have to read through all my tasks any more to figure out what to do next)

I’ve got more detailed ideas about unique priority functionality, but (as an Agilist) I would first like to know if there’s gonna be a reasonable chance that this functionality is gonna be implemented, before I spend my time writing detailed specifications.

So please vote if you want unique prioritisation!

Of course I don't want the current priority functionality to disappear! So maybe we should call it:
- unique importance
- unique sort number
- ...

What are your suggestions for a good name?

I suggest those interested in this feature see my request for implementing a "value" attribute to items on a list.

If you don't like the idea, can you please tell me why?
Voting "I don't like it" without providing any feedback is hard to discuss ;-)

In an attempt to defend my idea (without knowing why people vote against it):
The idea won't change anything else of Remember The Milk. You don't have to use it... ...and just keep on using Remember The Milk exactly as you do now. :-)

I personally map the urgent/important matrix to priority:
- Urgent/Important to P1
- Important to P2
- Urgent (interruption) to P3
- distraction to no priority
Within a priority it would be very useful to reorder the individual items as proposed by ward.bergmans. Perhaps by dragging them into position and having "my order" be an additional sort option.

I guess my link must be custom for my account maybe... unsure. Search the forum then for my idea that adds a similar, but not interfering request for implementing a "value" attribute to items on a list.

To find it search the forum for:
Ability to assign value to item on list and also ability to sum all values of items on that list
