Rearrange Project Tasks Using Drag & Drop

After you’ve added tasks to a Project List, you can easily rearrange them using drag & drop.

When rearranging Project tasks, keep in mind that you can have nested levels of Project tasks. Each task level will be indented slightly, and thus will have an effect on where you will want to drop your Project task. You need to place the Project task between two tasks, but you will also need to be precise as to which task level (left to right) to drop it in.

Additionally, you can drop your Project task into another Project task (a parent task).

The way you rearrange a Project task will vary slightly depending on if you are using an iPhone, iPad, a Trackpad on a Mac, or a mouse on a Mac.

Rearranging a Project Task on an iPhone, iPad, or Trackpad:

1. Press and hold the Project task you would like to move.

2. Without lifting your finger, drag the Project task to the new location. The Project task can be placed:

a. between two existing Project tasks

b. into an existing Project task (the incoming Project task will be placed as the last Project task within the parent Project task)

c. above the first Project task within a parent Project task

d. below the last Project task within a parent Project task

3. Lift your finger off the Project task and the Project task will drop into the new location.

Rearranging a Project task on a Mac, using your mouse:

1. Click and hold the Project task you would like to move.

2. Without lifting your finger off the mouse, drag the Project task to the new location. See #2 above for different options where you can drop a Project task.

3. Lift your finger off the mouse, and the Project task will drop into the new location.

Important Note:

A parent Project task can contain other Project tasks (sub-tasks). When rearranging a parent Project task, all of the Project tasks within it will be included in the move. You will see them appear to “roll up” within the parent Project task as you are moving it.
