    Got it - sorting by the tag column in top list view
    IOS does't offer the top list view
    - I would like that too for more reasons than the tag sorting

    TSW does recomend prefixing the priority with a number, and sorting on the tag column. 
    Another use was to identify action items with no tags.

    I use shortcuts pointing to saved searches.
    - a list of tasks with no tags          -tag:*
    - a list of now tasks                       tag:"1-Now"
       with additional shortcuts for Next and Soon

    Personally I found the 1-, 2-, 3- prefix counterproductive and I switched to a pefix of "When"
    I start typing "When", I get a dropdown list displaying all my when tags

    Another benefit of using a saved search is that it expands beyond the simple tag
    For example, my Now list includes notes flagged as reminders - this allows notes to automatically appear on the required date and drop off when completed

    I've not used saved searches before, but I will now. I really like your use of 'When ' as I don't always remember the correct formatting of the prefix, but this seems pretty foolproof and should give me the overview that I'm looking for.

    Thanks for responding and correctly interpreting my query!
