Task priority is a Plus and Pro tier feature that allows you to communicate the level of urgency (or lack of it) around a particular task, which makes it easier for you and your team to decide what you should be working on and when.
Task priority is an optional detail that you can apply to any task. It helps, along with due dates, communicate what you or your team should focus on first when there is more than one thing to do in a day. You can add priority during task creation or on already-created tasks.
Simply click into the Priority field in your new or existing task and choose from the dropdown that appears. You can set the priority level as Low, Medium, High, or Urgent, or leave it as None if you don't want to apply one yet.
You can also add priority inline in your Project and Tasks views. In the Column or Kanban view in your projects, click the lightning icon below the task name to set the priority without leaving the project view.
In the project List view, or in your Tasks tab, the priority icon will sit on the right side of the screen. Click it to see the popover and quickly add a priority level.
Once set, a coloured dot (or flame icon, if Urgent) will appear alongside the task name in your Task and Project views.
Showing and Sorting by Priority
If you don't see the priority option in your projects or tasks tab, confirm that:
- Your team has a Plus or Pro subscription. Teams using the Basic plan do not have access to the Task Priority feature.
- The Priority toggle is enabled in the Show menu (see below).
If you want to use priority to structure your workday, you can also sort your Task and Project views by Priority. To do so, click Sort at the top of the view and select Priority from the dropdown. The sections will then order from most urgent to least.
Note: Task priority is only available on Flow's Plus and Pro plans. You can see what is available in all our plans here.
