Feature Request: Gantt View sort by Record Number (not ID) (Poll Vote at the bottom)
In the Gantt view
When the start and end date are equal to the start and end date of another record, the records will be ordered by their creation date.
I would like the records to be sorted by Record Number when start/end dates are created equal.
This will allow for the sorting of tasks to be organized manually from within the Grid view.
This is useful when one record (or task) needs to be completed before another record for project management purposes.
Tasks are always being created and updated and moved around.
All workarounds are very cumbersome to get tasks to fall in order.
My current workaround: Reorder tasks how I want them, Copy and paste all tasks into a new table in order for the Creation Date to be updated in the order that the records are in. All records now fall in order, but this is not practical.
Question to Airtable and Community
Is there a use case for having records in Gantt view be placed in order based on Creation Date rather than Record Number? I can’t think of one but I’m only using the Gantt view for project management. Maybe there’s another reason.
