Why Sorting and Filtering Are so Useful?

These are compelling features that can be found in every Nozbe Personal view’s info bar, eg. Priority, Projects, You + Team etc. They help manage long task lists as you can sort the tasks or filter them. 

Attention: Please note that a given list of filtering options shows only the ones that are available at the moment on the list you want to filter. That’s why the drop-down menu with the filtering options changes depending on where you are in Nozbe Personal.

Drag and drop with sorting on

Do you want to drag and drop your tasks to move them to a different project but the system won’t let you do it? Please, check whether you have any sorting option enabled on the top bar right above the list of tasks.

If the sorting is active in a view, you won’t be able to either move the tasks on the current list or to move them to different projects, categories etc. In this case you have to turn the sorting off before you drag and drop items.

Hint: How to Filter by Multiple Categories

Although right now it is not possible to filter the list by two categories at once, there is a special workaround to achieve a similar effect.
You can filter the list by one category, and filter it (the search results) again by the second one. Only tasks with both categories will stay on your list then.
