I have a tip for you that I have not seen posted on the web, and that has been driving me, and obviously others crazy.
It has to do with ordering task views so that a due date of "None" appears at the end of the list, yet the other due dates appear in ascending order.
One simple (but not completely foolproof) way to do this is to decide to only give due dates to a certain level of priority – say, "high" priority. All other priority gets "None" as a due date. If one adheres to this, then all you need to do is set Advanced View Settings so that:
is set with "Priority (descending), Due date (ascending)"
and that solves the problem! What's nice about this solution is that you can "Group" the tasks any way you like.
(It's so hard to believe that this has been a problem for so many years – Microsoft should just allow a more general modification of the sorting of due dates).
Thanks Hedgehog. This is certainly one way to solve the problem.
