The release of Sortd 1.0.0 sees the launch of the first Sortd paid for subscription package "Sortd PRO". The current version of Sortd will continue to work as before although certain limits on the number of tasks and lists will apply. The default Sortd Starter package is envisaged to remain free forever.
Additional features and services will be added to the Sortd PRO subscription as well as several new subscription options that will be launched in the coming months. Features such as Task collaboration and managing Sales/Recruitment workflows will be included in these (optional) paid for subscription packages. All packages will include a free trial period (where appropriate).
All users who signed up for Sortd during the Beta will continue to have access to all their tasks and lists even if the number of tasks/lists they currently have exceeds the Starter package limits. Any new lists and/or tasks created from now on will however count towards those limits. Please see the new Sortd Pricing page as well as the updated Terms and Conditions.
Obviously we know everybody would like Sortd to remain free forever, but as we all know that is not possible (unless we bombard you with adverts), but we have tried to keep the pricing reasonable, and ensure that the free tier (Starter package) still provides good utility. Let us know what you think about the pricing and the packages we are proposing.
Q: Several People have mentioned that they use Sortd across multiple email addresses, and have queried how the subscriptions work when using multiple email accounts.
A: Each subscription is for one email address, so if you need a PRO subscription for 2 or more email addresses you will need to subscribe for each one. However, if you only require Sortd PRO for one email address there is no need to upgrade the others.
Q: We have been asked if we have the option to pay for Sortd on an annual basis instead of monthly.
A: We do not currently provide this functionality but may well in the future. Currently once you subscribe Sortd will bill your Credit Card monthly, but you do not need to do anything on a monthly basis. Sortd will continue to bill every month unless/until the subscription is cancelled, which can be done at anytime, via the Accounts tab of Sortd's Settings.
Being able to pay by the year would be awesome. I am not going to fill out an expense report every month for $2.
Hi Bradley. Can you tell me what Task assignment will be? Hoping it has something to do with Google Calendar collaboration? Thanks!
Hi Bradley - thanks for your response. That said, how about a way for Events to sync with Google Calendar? Would be great to add events to Google Calendar and have them sync with Sortd, and vice-versa.
Do I need to sign up all over again to get the PRO subscription? When I go to the pricing page to sign up for the plan, I get a pop-up to sign up for the beta - and I already am in the beta. Thanks!
How do I subscribe? The only option I see is a 14 day trial. I've already had a two year trial. I just want to continue using Sortd and not have to worry about it. Thanks.

What if I delete lists?
During beta and now at present I have 17 lists. If I delete all of them, will Starter subscription then only limit me to 4 or 21 lists?
Gabe, If you signed up to the Beta before the subscriptions where introduced you will be able to keep all the lists and tasks you currently have, i.e. Sortd will not hide/delete anything. If you already have more than 4 lists, if you delete a list and have not subscribed to PRO you will not be able to create a new list without subscribing. Similarly you will not be able to go over 25 tasks per list. So in your case if you delete one of your Lists you will be limited to 16 lists. I hope that explains things a little bit better.
Long term beta user moving an important email into a category list. Unexpected 'pop up' appeared informing me I had exceeded my.... whatever.
Fine I understand and happy to pay a subscription but...the email I was attempting to move that prompted the 'pop-up' disappeared? Not at all encouraging or helpful maybe somebody should take a look see.
My Pro Trial ends in 8 days ... and I can not see any of the "Get tons of features to make you into
an email ninja ... without any limits."....
I will wait to receive something really new that is worth to stay in the PRO mode
My trial subscription expired, but when i click in PURCHASE button
Only a cross appear in the screen ...
Alfonso, Thanks for feedback. I think there is an issue, which I have asked the Engineers to look at. I hope to have a solution tomorrow.
The day (or day before, I forget which) my trial ended, the Upgrade button at the bottom right of the mail screen took me to a window where I was actually able to subscribe. Just FYI, it worked.
Alfonso, the issue you experienced should be fixed. Please reload your Gmail/Sortd tab and try again. If its not working please open a support ticket as we will have to investigate further.
Thanks for the update Betty. Glad it worked.
Robin, no you do not need to signup all over again. Sortd will prompt you to upgrade if you exceed the limits. Alternatively you can upgrade from the Account Settings, found in the Sortd Settings, which is accessed via the cog at the bottom left of the Sortd main screen.
Tim, I am sorry about that. If you refresh your email will appear back in the Inbox, so it is not lost. I have however also just deployed a fix for that, although you will need to reload Sortd to get the latest version with the Bug fix included. There is no new Chrome Extension.
