Looking for ideas how you may have addressed this situation:
A Change is created and Tasks are added:
Task 123 - Download the patches
Task 127 - upgrade the server
Task 139 - update CI information
During the project other items are added, let's add another task to reboot the server.
Task 140 - Reboot the server
I want Task 140 to be the 2nd item in the list.
With existing fields we can sort by Task # or Title. To use Title successfully we would need edit each task title and put a number in front of it. If you have 20 tasks and want to add an item at number two that's a lot of editing.
Any clever solutions out there?
I've addressed something similar in another system to rank personnel by creating a rank field: (People were ranked based on year of graduation, length of time hired and partner status)
A procedure ran, counted the number of people, and assigned a rank number that was incremented in 5's.
person 1, rank 5
person 2, rank 10
person 3, rank 15
A new employee could be inserted in between temporarily using a number in between:
person 4, rank 6
The procedure was then re-run to increment the numbering scheme back to 5's. (I could see using 1, 1.1, 1.2 and then renumbering to 1,2,3 so the boss has something pretty and organized to look at.)
Is this something I could plug into a Quick Action button?
