User specific default task inbox sort

Monash University asked me to log this feature request on their behalf, but also as a user, I would like this as well:)

I always change my task inbox sort from Due Date Descending to Assigned Date Ascending to see what has been recently assigned, as I already know most of the time what is due.   What I want to know, when I login to the task inbox, is what new tasks are out there for me to pick up.  

We get so many emails, and are working multiple tasks,  so the task assignment email is often forgotten or lost in the list. It would be nice to have a user specific task inbox default sort feature that I could set, as I am always going in an changing it every time I enter the inbox.

The Task Inbox is being updated to persist the users last set Filter, Sort and Search settings.  This is in development and should release soon.  Currently targeted for r111.

We would love to have the persist functionality for this.  Persist works in all other sorts, why not here too.

We have had the same request from multiple users as well. I would love to have the filtering ability expanded. 

We have had multiple users with the same request to have the ability to set a default sort in the task inbox, they have multiple tasks listed and it makes sense for them to see the most recent.  

Yes, persisting the sort would be very helpful.


Rather than having a user set a default sort, can we just persist your last sort selection.  So once you change it to something else we remember your last sort selection and the next time you open the Inbox it loads that same sort again.  This is our standard approach in many cases already so it would be consistent.

I think a persistent sort selection in the Task Inbox would be a great enhancement.
