Task Priority

I was advised by Sara May to post this Feature Request for you consideration and, hopefully, your votes. I am not sure if anyone checks these things let alone vote for them but here goes.

There is no way to set Task Priorities. I know that there are labels and it appears, according to some of the posts I read on this subject, that Podio believes this meets the needs for prioritizing tasks. The problem, which is substantial when working with a team, is that these labels are private. Meaning that, even if I create a label and assign a task with that label, once I assign that task to my assistant or someone else on my team they can not see my expectations regarding that task. 

One of the recommendations I have been given is to use an actions app. I don't prefer that because it has to be inside a workspace and it is only possible to sort it one way. For example, I can sort according to the assigned team member or by priority. Not both.

If you think that a priority feature on Tasks is a good idea, or even if you don't care but don't think that it will hurt, please vote for this feature.

Yes!  This is essential for letting team members know which tasks are most urgent/important.  This is another necessary and logical functions that should have been a part of tasks from the beginning

Yes!! Could Podio perhaps offer a feature along the lines of the Eisenhower Matrix? Four quadrants with "Important" and "Less Important" on the X axis and "Urgent" and "Less Urgent" on the Y axis? We definitely need a method for better task management.

Agreed, let's get an Urgent task feature that bumps the task up the list
