How to use a custom field for ranking/ordering in Greenhopper


Is there a way to use a custom field to rank/order stories in Greenhopper?

We prioritize our stories based on input from product management and tech architects. Each story will have a product management and tech architect weighting. If we were using Excel to manage our backlog, we would easily then have a calculated field to produce a ranking and order based on that.

Is something like this possible with Greenhopper?

Hi Eoin,

Are you looking for this Rank custom field? I believe Greenhopper have this rank field in latest version.

opps..i guess copy and paste doesn't always work :-)

What I meant to say was:

"THanks for the reply. I have tried using custom rank fields but unsuccesfully. Whn I create a Scrum board in Greenhopper it always uses a new filter for that board which orders by the in built rank field."
