How do you sort Swimlanes by Due Date?

Hi All,

I'm having a hard time sorting my Swimlane by Due Date.

I want to sort Task tickets by Due Date but this query doesn't work: 

issuetype = Task ORDER BY duedate ASC

It doesn't do anything.

I would appreciate your help.

Hi @Elizabeth Rufo,

if I understood you correctly, you don't want to sort the swimlanes, but the tasks within the swimlanes, correct?

You can do so by configuring the filter query of your board by accessing the board settings in the upper right corner of your board, see also the Atlassian docs. As a query you could use the one you mentioned

issuetype = Task ORDER BY duedate ASC

Is that what you tried already?


This is an issue I’ve experienced too!

Hi Elizabeth, your JQL filter query will work if you turn off Ranking on your Board. As the filter won’t currently override your Board priority. 
If you do this, you can also prioritise with Custom Fields too!

Hope this helps!?
