default priority in org-mode

problem

org default priority is usually [B] and it's hard to control. i want to set it into lowest.

what is expected

For me, this is nice

  • [A]
  • [B]
  • [C]
  • default

solution

You can change the range of allowed priorities by setting the options org-highest-priority, org-lowest-priority, and org-default-priority. For an individual buffer, you may set these values (highest, lowest, default) like this (please make sure that the highest priority is earlier in the alphabet than the lowest priority):
(setq org-highest-priority 65)
(setq org-lowerst-priority 68)
(setq org-default-priority 68)

effect

now i'm happy :) it reduce 50% of my time to organize TODO-list
