Sort out sub-sort order for Triage Status
Items are currently ordered first by Triage Status and then sub-
ordered alphabetically by Title. At times, this can make the user
feel like they "lost" items once they've triaged them.
There isn't a clear solution to this problem for a number of reasons.
On the Desktop, we're hopefully moving to a model where items in
LATER are filed by 'proximity in time'. LATER items that are *about
to become* NOW at the top. LATER items scheduled for way in the future
Here's the Desktop bug: Revisit sub-sort of LATER and DONE section in
This is a hard issue to resolve in the web UI for a number of reasons:
+ Web UI currently does not support / display alarms; unfortunately,
+ Custom-date alarms are a key factor in how we plan to calculate
'proximity in time'.
What to do?
1. Display alarms in the Date column? This would mean implementing
the smart Date column functionality.
2. Sub-sort Triage Status by *when* the item was triaged. That way
when items are triaged to LATER or DONE, they at least appear at the
top of the list of LATER items.
If we go with #2, what happens when a Desktop user syncs? Does the
Desktop users' order override the web UI ordering?
It's possible that the *cleanest* thing to do would be to keep the
sorting logic between the Desktop and Hub apps the same. But is that
doable in a reasonable timeframe given the additional Date-column
functionality that needs to be implemented on Hub?
