Filtering and Sorting Task List

With filtering and sorting options, you can easily manage your task list.

By default, the tasks list displays all the tasks assigned to a current user. Though, you can view other members' tasks by selecting an assignee from the corresponding drop-down list. 

You can also filter tasks by client, project, tag, and status:

  • Client - allows you to see the tasks performed for a specific client in all projects (All is set by default). 
  • Project - allows filtering tasks depending on the projects they belong to (No project, Active, and Done). By default, you can view tasks across all projects. 
  • Tag - filters tasks by the tags or work types associated with them.
  • Status - allows displaying tasks in the list based on their status: Open, Completed, or All (Open is used by default). 

To remove the filters currently applied, click the Clear Filter button.

Sorting tasks

In TMetric, task sorting, actually, combines both sorting and grouping options. You can sort tasks by project,  last updated, newer first, or older first. By default, tasks are sorted by Project

When sorted by Last Updated, the task list is divided into groups based on a time range: Today, Yesterday, Few Days Ago, Last Week, Few Weeks Ago, Last Month, and Two Months Ago or Older.

Sorting by Newer First works the same way as Last Updated, but sorting is done based on the creation date of a task. 

The task list will be divided into groups based on the time range when using the Older First sorting option. The tasks will be organized in the following order: Two Months Ago or Older, Last Month, Few Weeks Ago, Last Week, Few Days Ago, Yesterday, and Today


Another way of filtering the task list is by using the search. There are two search criteria to choose from: 

  • Name
  • Description

The task list will be filtered depending on the search criteria you use.
