    We have recently added the option to mark a task with a star to indicate the priority. Lists can also be sorted by Priority now which will put all starred items to the top of the list.

        It would be great to also have a "doing" classification like in scrum. Alongside to do and complete.

        Adding a star is not a ranking. OK, it is a 2 position ranking. I would like the common 4. Important & Time Sensitive, Important but no Time Sensitive, Not Important but Time Sensitive, Not Important and not Time Sensitive. I would also add a second sort of Work/Personal/Other (editable names for your own categories). This way I could have one list and focus on whatever I wanted without switching lists.

        Please add a way to rank items on the list in terms of importance. It doesn't have to be a 1-5 ranking, but being able to slide one entry higher on the list so that the list is prioritized in the order you would like to complete the tasks would be helpful.

        Another joke just like the subtask joke. Does this team even read the requests and comments in this forum?

        Starred is better than high / normal / low that is too complicated on use. Lacking a eau to see (or not see) starred tasks on top of any ordering

        Marcel: Please share what the team is thinking on this. Will the user be able to indicate a priority level (e.g., 1-5, 1-10, ???) associated with any task. Then, I assume “Priority” will be a new option in the List Sort Menu. Is that correct? If it is something like I described, I think this will be very helpful...
