Ever wanted to sort things in Dynalist? Now it’s possible!

To use: choose one or more items and select the sort key and order. If only one item is chosen, its children will be sorted. If multiple items are chosen, they themselves will be sorted and their children will not be affected.

Sorting is available right now on the web app.

Yes, it’s coming to the desktop apps very soon. No, we’re not sure when it will be available on the mobile apps. No, it’s not a Pro feature. And yes, we will consider adding shortcuts for these commands for you power users. Leave a comment for any other question you might have!

  • Thank you. It’s great to have the option to sort by edited date as well as title.

    Thank you, Dynalist team! 🙂

  • Rob Saunders

    AND it sorts by DATE if the date field is the first thing on the line! SO awesome.
    Thank you.

    • Smart use case!

        Thank you for the new item Sorting functionality. Please add ability to sort by Date even when the Date isn’t at the start of the item. (When items contain multiple Dates, sort by the first one from the left.)

  • Morgan B Newall

    Oh YEAH! Good job you guys!

  • Jason Ables

    Nice work!

  • Stephen Jarjoura

    Great feature, thank you!

  • Samuel Radcliffe

    This is fantastic. As a next step, it would be great to have an “auto-sort” mode where a new item would be immediately put in a specified sort order.


    Love you guys! I can’t live without dynalist 😉

    I like dynalist very much and now it’s my desktop app mainly . But please improve the user experience on the ios app, the dynalist is used very slowly on my iphone6s, I don’t know why.
