Is there an easy way to allow my users to be able to sort tasks in individual lists by due date? I looked under the hood and noticed you guys are using the JQuery Sortable UI to manage the order. My users want to see their tasks by due dates and growing tired of manually having to drag to re-order. Because of the structure of the todo lists and how the date is nested the normal method of using JQuery to reorder based on the date stamp has not been very easy.
Any advice or insights you can provide would be very appreciated.
So I have to ask. I was poking around the front end plugin and I notice that those tasks are being pulled in order of date due. Can a developer tell me what is being called to order that in that due date order vs. the back end? I snooped around and didnt see anything obvious, is there a certain function I should be looking at?
For anyone that might need this in the future. The filter / function that needs to be modified or expanded on is cpm_get_task . The date meta key is _due. I tried sorting by using 'orderby' => 'meta_value_num', but it didnt like that so you have to use the plain meta_value and it seems to work.
