Is there a way to make "sort by date" the default view?

Hey @TiffanyP15

I moved your comment out of the share an idea to respond with step by step instructions for your Paper to do's list. 

You cannot set the to do's to "By date". Paper will always show you both. 

I took screenshots to show you how it looks. 

  • Click the checkbox next to the bell.

  • Now you have the "By date" list and the "By doc".

This is by far my favorite Paper update. So convenient. Heart

Feel free to ask more Dropbox questions or provide feedback. 

Thank you!

Hi, i wonder why i can not see not assigend tasks in Tasklist.

Would it not be possible to have a "not assigned" filter next to "for me" and "for others"?

Like it is now task easily can get lost, thats not good at all

Welcome to the Community and this discussion @Ben_Willes

I moved your post here to show you how your tasks should show in Dropbox Paper. Even the tasks/to do's that are not assigned to someone, can show in a list. 

If you don't see them there, maybe the browser is not loading, or the tasks are checked. This removes them from the list. 

Troubleshoot on your browser following the instructions below:

  1. Clear your browser's cache.
  2. Try Incognito Mode/Private Browsing mode.
  3. Restore your browser to its default settings and disable any browser plugins.

Let me know if this helps you see your tasks. 

Thank you!

Re: Add due date support for tasks

Hi Guys, 

We use the "tasks" often and they are usually assigned to a person and have a due date and are ticked off when completed. 

 

It would be great if we were able to auto sort the list of "todos" based on the due date that has been set.

Hey @Chr1ssso, thanks for reaching out to us here!

I'd suggest taking a look at Fiona's suggestions above on how you can sort your To do list by due dates.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
