Add tasks to top of list

(closed account) says:
When I add a task it goes to the bottom of the list. I would like to have the option of adding it to the top of the list. This applies to all platforms.

Please vote for this feature and save time dragging your task all the way to the top of a long list each time you add a task that you want to appear at/near the top.

I agree that it's not a great experience to not have an option. You can set up some custom sorting that reverse sorts the list by date added, but that's simply a workaround.

Thanks. How do you add custom sorting and do you need to turn off drag and drop to do that?
Come on people, vote for the this feature!

I cannot believe that the default is to move a task to bottom! There shouldn't even need to be an option for this, default should be for task to go to top! In any case, we absolutely need an option to add new task to top yes. This is a critical option for my workflow.

I totally agree! Please RTM. Listen to your users of over 10 years! At least make this an option. Please people, place your vote.

The lack of this feature is driving me mad! Why on earth is the default to add at the bottom?!

I've just realised that this is still an issue. With most todo apps you can choose whether the tasks go to the top or the bottom of the list. This is really annoying. :/

I also noticed that you can change this by changing the sorting of the tasks to date added. Workaround

I use Drag & Drop sorting, and I constantly have to add a new task to the current list, scroll to the bottom, drag it up to the top, then I can move it to a different day so it doesn't end up being on the bottom when the day the task is scheduled for comes.

hightime says:
Me too. I'm coming from Wunderlist, where this is a standard option. I work in drag and drop mode and it's important to my workflow to have new tasks at the top, so I'm having to drag every single new task to the top. Will seriously consider other alternatives to Wunderlist if this isn't fixed soon.

I agree. I have used a number of to do apps and this is the first one that does not have an option to add tasks at the top. You can but then you lose drag and drop so you cannot prioritize your tasks. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!

This is driving me insane also. Given it's not even a difficult thing to implement, I'm surprised and disappointed that it's still not even being considered. It may become a showstopper for me before long.

I bet moving the last item to the first place is the single most common user action request of all, by a long way.
It's incredible that they didn't notice it, even if they don't want to read their own "ideas" section.

Sigh, oh no! I'm coming from Wunderlist. Almost stopped at Todoist, but it had no add-to-top feature. RTM seems great in all respects except this. Yeah, I've got a lot of items in my Inbox. And I want to sort by drag-and-drop. And... I want new items to start at the top. Dragging items from the bottom is probably going to be a no-go and force me away from RTM. I guess they don't care to offer this as a feature since it has been requested for years.

Same as above ^ New items to bottom instead of top is not logical. Came from wunderlist and am baffled by this obvious flaw. Why no remedy after all these comments??

dave.liao says:
Same as these recent users. Microsoft To-Do (all versions) just came out with a toggle in their preferences for users to choose whether to add tasks to the bottom or top of lists. Would love this!

Yes, this very necessary for drag and drop lists!

Add my voice to the din. I’m coming from Things 3 on Mac and the friction this is causing me is extreme. Just give us the option!

I hope a lot of people from wunderlist come over cause that will help blow this request up. The problem is it's such a basic--almost 'mundane'--feature that it does not get a lot of attention.
