Nuanced priority usage
If you are just starting out with Lunatask, feel free to skip this article.
Higher priority does not always mean the task should always be done before other tasks with lower priority.
Imagine a case when you have only one
Started task in the list. Now, a new more important task is added to
Next. Assigning the highest priority will now make the task in
Next more urgent than the task in
Started, hence it appears on top of the list in Now / Later workflow, and it will be highlighted as the next task to work on.
Assigning the priority of
High to the task in
Next won't have the same effect. You can use the priority of
High to sort your next tasks to work on after you finish the work you already started.
Similarly, this can be applied to
Lowest priorities. Assigning a lower priority to a task in
Started means putting it on hold for a while.
See the table below for the exact order of rules in workflows based on task status (higher in the list means more urgent).
