Q: Is there a way to get the task lists to have the most recent added on the top of the list rather than the bottom
A: If you have the "Sort Order" set to "Due Date, Priority, Order" it will.
Q: There isn't that ability on the right side correct?
A: Correct, the point of the right side (dashboard) is to make sure you get everything done or dealt with. Oldest are at the top because they should have been done already and you need to either do them, delete them or reschedule them.
