The ability to reorder tasks in scripts
This has been open since 2011 and hasn't been done? I recreated a request for this and voted on this one as well. This is a no-brainer.

I have a script with three tasks and need to add a task to the beginng... I have to delete all the existing tasks and recreate them? Seems obvious that I should be able to reorder them.
Khader Welaye commented
Definitely need this, especially when writing a complicated script and realize you need to add something to the beginning later on.

This is an old idea, but we need it!
Please also add the ability to name tasks! It's a lot easier to troubleshoot if everything wasn't named "Task 1, Task 2, etc"

I thought this was already changed. I have a complex script I wrote in one task, I needed to split up the remediation section, but will have to manually move the code. I hope this can be added for the next version. :)

It has been a while since this was last bumped so I am here to shed some more light on it. It would be great to have the option to reorder tasks after they are created in the script to help with things that might be an afterthought or a bug you find when testing.

To add to the discussion, while XML is editable, it is also like editing a webpage in Notepad...you can do it, but it takes a long time and if you miss one little character somewhere, you waste time looking for it. The most compelling argument for this feature would be so that scripts can be kept neat and efficient.

I think this is a great idea. Using XML like Jayson suggested works, but it is the same as resorting to have to edit labels by actually modifying the SQL queries instead of being able to use the GUI, mostly due to its inability to handle editing, multiple fields, or other simple features.

I've got to where I pretty much use the XML for this, but it would definitely be sweet to simply click an arrow.
