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?

This widget could not be displayed.

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
