ORDER BY Priority DESC is not working in backlog/active sprint

I have a Quick Filter with ORDER BY Priority DESC, but backlog & active sprint are still sorted by RANK (and I can still drag to change rank).

Any idea why my sort order is being ignored?

Because a quick filter is there to hide issues from the board, not change the sort order.

Thanks for the clarification. So where do I set the sort order of the backlog/active sprint?
And can I do it in a way that I can easily switch back and forth between rank order and priority order?
 

The sort order is set in the board's filter.  So there's no way to change the sort order quickly.

Yes, I just worked that out :sad:

I've now created two personal boards - one for sorting by priority and another for viewing by rank.

Seems really inefficient. What's really lacking is a treeview setup where you can easily click on column headers to sort by rank, priority, status, owner (or ideally any other field I might choose to have as a column header) 

Thanks for your help & quick responses!

You can do that - try the issue navigator!

Yes, but I want this sort order in my backlog view, so I can view the top issues, select multiple and assign them to the current (or another defined) sprint.

But thanks for trying :smile: 

Couldn't agree more with the Jackie's needs. Would look forward to a solution to this!

Is there any solution on 2020 for this need?

No.

I don't think Atlassian are going to do this, because if you sort by something other by ranking, it's impossible to rank issues in a way most people will understand.

I have to chime in. Atlassian gives us many fields but the reality is we move the work i the priority order we need it to be.  I need a simple detailed printed report in MY order and it can't do this.  I have tried multiple things.  Aside from doing alot of extra work to assign priority numbers (which would change regularly) I cannot get this.  I can print my screen but there is no way to get a nice formatted detail report.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
