New Action Items at the top? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I was wondering if there was a way to have new Action Items appear at the top of a project action list as opposed to at the bottom? It might be something I've missed in the options but I would like to see the most recently added action at the top as opposed to the bottom.

Do you mean they appear at the bottom when you drag an action onto a project in the sidebar (e.g. dragging new actions from your Inbox to a project)?

If that's the case, then no, I don't think there's a way to control the new action's position. It always appears at the bottom of the list.

On the other hand, if you're in a project and want to add a new action to the top of the list, you can select the current top-most action and hit Shift-Return to create a new action above the existing one.

You can also select a list of actions (or hit Command-A to select all in the current projects) and choose Edit -> Sort -> By Date Added to sort the items by creation date (in descending order with most recent additions on the top).

Hope this helps.
Hey Toadling

Perfect, both Shift-Return and the Edit-->Sort-->By Date Added were exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
