The dropdowns that appear on the to do list in Workflow do not remember their state if you move away from the page (indicated in the screenshot wf_drops.png)
So if you select "Due on (descending)" in the "Sort" dropdown, open a task then go back to the todo list, the user has to select the sort again.
It would be very useful if:
*) these dropdowns remembered their previous state (not sure if they already do, but would also be useful if the selected columns are remembered across sessions also)
*) it is possible for us to specify default options for this page.
