More priority levels
Instead of just a star indicating priority and then filtering it into a list, set up more than one priority level. I need to have priority tasks but also need them sorted by high, medium, low, and none. not everything is the same priority. I find myself having to rearrange the tasks on the list all the time.
Need to be able to give tasks a priority and sort them by priority.
Either 1 to 5 or High Med Low.

High, Medium Low and without a priority are ok!
there is no mechanism for any means of prioritization (1 2 3 … Red Yellow Green, A B C, etc.) of which it would be great to be able to select the priority format we ourselves like to use. The single ‘flag’ type tag is quite useless unless it is on a single item.
I use an open-ended numeric list… there is only #1 task! … some like a bunch of As and Bs and a few Cs, others like RYG traffic semaphore.

Would be really great to have this option available. I use Wunderlist every day and when working on bigger projects with 50 - 60 different task, it's sometimes really hard to see who is working on what (because all ribbons are red). This feature would be great if you could choose between 5 - 10 colors. I hope this will be included in the next update, thanks!
High, Medium and Low priority raties

You could keep the start system, to keep it convenient (as it is right now), the start system could be the default system, what would be nice is to have options that allow people like me to customize it a little bit more. For example, one option could be the possibility to add priority, sort by option.. The idea is to keep the app simple, which is probably the reason why it attracts so many people, but to give the option to people like me who have been using it for a while to get more out of it by giving them the option to customise it a little bit more.
I second this feature, but instead of high, medium, low... would prefer a number for the priority from 1 to 5 ... 1 being the higher priority.

Steven Covey's Priority Matrix would be great!:
1 - Important and Urgent
2 - Non Urgent but Important
3 - Urgent but not important,
4 - Not urgent and not important

Definitely need the prioritization feature. And having a way to help users determine priority based on effort level & impact would be really slick.
Check out this article about a simple method (I didn't write the article, nor am I trying to sell something)
I absolutely support this suggestion! But i'd like to add a request to have an option to prevent a marked (prioritized) item from automatically move to the top of the list.
In that case I can use the starts or other markings as a kind of labels.
I really like to have a priority level. Even the rearrange task might work, but I couldn't make it work somehow. It said just drag and drop, well mine doesn't work that way. Or maybe I don't know the trick. If anybody can tell me how, I would be very happy. Thanks!
I like the simplicity of urgent / star or not. If multiple levels of priority are important, then I suggest a client config option to allow users to specifcy 2 (as it is now) or 3 or whatever.
That's the main feature that I miss in Wunderlist and keep me trying another products.
This would be great! The ability to organize by priority would be great, but if possible please include the manual version along with it. (You could always allow users to choose between purely manual or by priority ranking if it is simpler)
I'd like to see a feature added where you can list the priority of the task from 1 to 5. And that the priority would affect how the tasks are listed in the window.

Personally, I find it very useful to have priority as two fields: urgency (high/normal) and importance (high/normal).
And then have the ability to sort by those two - by urgency+importance for normal day-to-day management and by importance+urgency for week (or longer term) planning.

You could also just number the priorities like,
1 - Highest Priority
2 - Next Highest
Excellent idea!... this needs to be done to make this application much more useful. I suggest three levels of priority as follows:
- star on a red flag = top priority
- star on a yellow flag = second level of priority
- star on a green flag = third level of priority
AND that the tasks can be sorted by these!
Mitch Lusas commented
Agree with Mark. Maybe the number of times you click the Star determines the Priority, and the color switches. Though, I would suggest only two complimentary colors. Low Priority is no Star.
One Click = HIGH (Red Star)
Two Clicks = Medium (____ Star)
Three Clicks = LOW (No Star) - only used if someone accidentally clicked the star, or wishes to lower the priority.

Keep it simple stupid.
#1 and red
#2 and yellow
#3 and green
for task priority. Having the option for 26 letters or 10 numbers is too much.
