Frank.dg 1,385 Posted December 26, 2014 Share Posted December 26, 2014 It's kind of a mission on desktop (particularly Windows) to switch from one sorting option to another: Most people frequently sort by "Date Updated" + "Reverse Sort Order". Now when one wants to sort by Title in ascending order, one needs to do the following to achieve that, (on Windows desktop) I kid you not: Tap on Sort Options menu Move the cursor down to "Sort notes by" to access that context menu Select Title Click on the Sort Options menu a 2nd time Once again, move the cursor down to "Sort notes by" to access that context menu again Uncheck "Reverse Sort Order" No less than 6 actions to switch the sorting one way... and then the same to switch back. For possibly 2 of the most commonly used sorting options. It gets extra tedious when one wants to switch back and forth frequently. On Mac it's a tad easier - just 3 actions. But still, one has to scan a list to choose the sorting option desired. When one sorts by Title, the great thing about Mac is that there is a separate sub section for Alphabetical/ Reverse Alphabetical Order. Your selection sticks the next time you switch back to Title. Likewise, on Mac, when one sorts by Date Updated, there is a sub section where your choice is set the next time you return to Date Updated (Most Recent to Least Recent/ Least Recent to Most Recent). A lot more intuitive this way. On mobile device, it's 2 actions either way. Tap. Tap. Can't complain there. Title automatically sorts in ascending order. The Web client seems to be way more intuitive in that at least it gives you the option with one click in the context menu to sort by Title (Ascending) or Title (Descending). It would significantly speed up our workflow on desktop (especially Windows) if one could customize the Note List tool bar by being able to drag at least two to three sorting option preferences there (create icons for them). There's tons of space there. That would be more intuitive and a heck of a lot less monotonous. Either that, or allow us to customize the context menu itself (Mac is half way there). It would be such a breeze to change back and forth between our most common sorting option preferences on desktop by 1 simple click at the top of the note list. Pretty please!! Link to comment
