How can I sort the "Other Issues" to the top?

In the GreenHopper swimlane board, all the stories that do not have sub-tasks fall under the "Other Issues" lane at the bottom of the board.

How can I get the "Other Issues" lane to be at the top?

The idea is that these "Other Issues" need attention, but are getting hidden and forgotten at the bottom.

There's currently no way to do this, though we would potentially like to change that in the future. You could try changing your swimlane configuration to just JQL in which case the subtasks and stories will all be displayed in rank order.


I hope this does change in the future. I think you understand my point that the "other" stories are potentially the ones that need more attention simply because they haven't been processed or whatever as the others have.

Using JQL for swimlanes just doesn't cut it because they don't have the same look and feel of the swimlanes based on story.
