Customize Tasks Page - Change Default View

Our team uses the Tasks feature to assign tasks to one another.

 

We have trained the team to review their Tasks page frequently so they make sure to complete everything that is on their board.

 

Since last week, users opening the Tasks page are being defaulted to "Due today" instead of "Open Tasks". This is causing users to not realize they have tasks assigned to them up until the due date.

 

I would really like to set the display defaults for this Tasks page for my entire team, as well as view/edit the status of a task (In Progress, Waiting, etc) in the table view mode.

I really don't like the new default view setting to "due today", the default view should from oldest to newst like it was before. We all miss tasks every day and our schedule gets busy all of a sudden and we see ourselves in meetings for 2-3 days straight. Please don't force a habit on us that doesn't match our day to day work. Hope your roll back this release, thank you.

The default view for tasks should be customizable. With this new change, I'm having to make an extra click EVERY SINGLE TIME I NAVIGATE TO TASKS.

I agree with the Default view for Tasks being on Open Tasks. It used to be this way and recently was changed to Due Today, so each time I go in to Tasks (which is all day), I have to click on Open Tasks which is where I want to go to begin with. 

 

Please change it back!

Please change it back.

It is very extreemly 100% annoying, unnecessary and a burdon to use now.

This change caused me to miss a crucial call with a customer, which came up on a schedule on a Bank Holiday Monday (when our office was closed), then didn't appear when I came in to the office on Tuesday.  

I realised what had happened a few days later, by which stage the customer had been sent a followup scheduled email.

Hubspot - please revert this change, or add a setting in Settings > Tasks, or (perhaps most consistent) - allow users to filter tasks and choose "make default", bringing the functionality in line with what we users are currently familiar with when viewing deals, etc.

Can you please add a default setting to tasks that would allow the user to choose how the task page opens up? 

 

Currently it opens to "Due Today", however, it would be great to have it open as "Open Tasks" rather than having to click into them every time. It's more important to me to make sure there are not any past due tasks which I can't see from the current setting.

 

Thank you.

It would save me a good deal of time to see all my open tasks verses having to click my default every time I view a task.  Please put a rush on the option to select my default view.

Has anyone else's default task view switched back to Open Tasks?

 

I've been working for the past 6 hours, and even about 3 hours ago default view was definitely Due Today, now it's definitely Open Tasks.  Hooray!!!


I've just signed out and back in again a few times to check, but definitely appears to be.  Not sure if one of the moderators/admin can confirm??
