Default Task list to match Outlook

Please Login to Remove!

I use a task list in Outlook on my PC. I don't prioritize it, so that I can dictate how tasks are organized. I can move them where I want them and have them appear in the order I want them to. However, on my Blackberry it won't let me have 'no priority' as an option, so that when I sync they come into my blackberry they are displayed in a new order, which does me no good at all. Does anyone know how I can solve this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

you could set all "no priority" tasks on your pc to normal that way the bb arranges them in the same order. By default. My tasks are set to normal

Yes, I could, but then I couldn't arrange my tasks in the order I prefer.

I should also say I don't have any sorting of any kind turned on either, so that I can truly move my tasks anywhere I want to in the list.

I probably should have said the Blackberry won't let me have a 'none' option regarding sorting. That's what allows one to move the tasks manually to any order.

Sorry for my confusing first post.

Apart from due date and priority and subject and status, there is no other way to organize. You would have to look in to 3rd party apps

This is a real sore point with the Blackberry - task management is awful. There are no third party programs that intergrate with the Outlook task list AND give the power you need on the BB. The creator of PocketDay was rumored to be working on a full featured task manager, but it would not integrate with Outlook.
