Sort by ascending/descending (to reverse order due date or priority)

I would like to be able to change the "sort by" option to view lists in reverse order or date or priority.

You can now choose ascending or descending with the new sorting/grouping options in the new Remember The Milk. Thanks for everyone's feedback on this!

Sorting, as it exists, was not originally part of RTM. It was added on 8/1/07, and those three sort options (priority, date, alphabetical) are much better than nothing, but...

These boards are littered with threads by people suggesting different sorting schemes. A very non-comprehensive list follows, including several that ask for just what you desire...

So when you hear cranky ol' timers lament that the UI of the RTM site has lain dormant while other things have been attended to - GMail, iPhone, &c. - this is exactly the sort of thing we're talking about. I really hope some basic things, like per-list, multi-variate, customizable sorting, are addressed before Bob turns his attention to Outlook syncing, for example.

* The idea that smartlists have access to an operator that would specify sorting is one of the many great ideas found in the threads above. I think that would help make RTM's best feature even better.

I think this sorting request should be merged with this one here (, which is (as far as I can tell) the mother of all "More sorting options, please!" thread.
