All users (including Collaborators) on all account types can change how tasks are sorted.

There are seven different sorting options on the List view. Sort tasks by: priority, date, date modified, date created, status, importance or title.
Regular and External Users can drag and drop tasks to change their priority, Collaborators cannot.
Priority is the default sorting setting for tasks in the List View. When sorting tasks by priority you can drag and drop tasks to change their priority: the closer a task is to the top of the list, the higher its priority.
All users who are shared on the folder or project will see tasks in the same order when they sort by priority. For example, if you change the order or tasks when sorting by priority, then the task list order is also changed for your teammates when they look at the folder or project and sort tasks by priority.
When sorting tasks by date, tasks are grouped into seven categories based on their scheduled dates: overdue, today, tomorrow, this week, next week, month, and later. or which are backlogged (do not have scheduled start and end dates).
This option sorts tasks according to how long ago users made any changes to the task. Wrike takes into account:
The most recently modified tasks appear at the top of the list.
When you apply this option, tasks are sorted by the date of their creation. The most recently created tasks are at the top of the list whilst the oldest ones are closer to the bottom.
When you sort tasks by status, tasks fall into groups based on a status they have. Within groups, tasks are sorted alphanumerically.
Note about Custom Statuses. Business and Enterprise users can have Custom Statuses with the same name but from different Workflows. Because these are two separate statuses, tasks in these statuses are sorted into different groups.
When you sort tasks by importance, tasks whose importance is set to “high” are listed first, followed by tasks with a “normal” importance, and then tasks with “low” importance are listed last.
Sort tasks by title to see a folder or project’s tasks listed alphanumerically.
How your tasks are sorted immediately changes to reflect your choice.
