Hi all. I've seen the chatter about the inability to re-order tasks within an item. I'm just wondering what people have come up with as a work-around? I have a set of tasks that are generated based on multiple choice options selected in a category above. Depending on what is selected, the items need to be done in a certain order. I've had a few ideas and I am seeking feedback on them, and any other ideas people have come up with.
-Manually subtract a few hours from the due date per task so that they sort in order (can't adjust hours via workflow, I don't think?)
-Have the workflow name the tasks 00-task name, 10-task name, 20-task name, etc., leaving room in between for any manual tasks created later. Wouldn't be in order but could at least be visually analyzed.
-Have the workflow create the tasks in a task app and give each task a number incremented by ten (as above). Problem with this is I would need to be able to sort by two things- the item in the initial app and then the number (so all tasks for a specific item are together). I guess I could create a calc field that concatenates the item name and the number.
Any thoughts? Anything that has worked well for others?
