How to export the ordered backlog

My PO orders the issues/stories and bugs in the backlog.  When I export, it does not maintain the order.  How do I export the backlog to excel and maintain the order in the backlog my team focuses on the highest priority items?

Ken,

What order are you using? Rank, priority, key, date?

Are you exporting from a filter?

If you create a filter and set the same order, when you do the export the order should be maintained

My PO has ordered the stories manually.  It's done by dragging higher priority item to the top of the list in the backlog list. 

When I view in issue navigator - the order is gone.  Thus, when I export - I am not exporting the items in the order of priority based on the PO's input. 

Perhaps I am asking the wrong question. Is there a better way to order the backlog then just dragging the higher priority items to the top in the backlog view? 

ORDER BY Rank ASC

 

And you'll get the exported issues in the same drag n drop order as the backlog list
