Asana provides a variety of ways of how you sort and filter your list of tasks. Some people like to set the order manually, while others want tasks to be automatically sorted by a characteristic like due date or assignee.
Reorder tasks in a project
Drag and drop tasks
Hover over the task's name, left click & hold the grid icon, then drag the task up or down the list
You can also use keyboard shortcuts to move tasks up or down the list. Just select a task and hold command (Mac) or control (Windows) and the up or down arrows on your keyboard.
Use your project toolbar to adjust your project view.
Incomplete, Completed, All tasks
Show only incomplete, completed or all tasks.
From your project's list view:
- Click the toggle icon
- Choose Incomplete, Completed or All tasks
Filter or sort your tasks
We've provided you with the most common views below, but you can customize and filter the view to get your list exactly the way you want it.

The Incomplete / Complete / All tasks button is now combined with the Filter button.
The Filter button now opens a new menu which allows you to implement multiple filters at once. There are also 3 quick filter options which are applied immediately when chosen: Incomplete tasks + assigned to me, All incomplete tasks, All completed tasks.

The Sort button now supports multiple sort options at once. When a sort is applied, the Sort button will turn blue in the same way as the Filter button does when a filter is applied.
