I have the same issue. You can reorder sub-taks inside a task in Kanban but you can't move the sub-tasks up ad down when the parent task is not present.
Is there any way to do it?
Would you please clarify what problem you are trying to solve?
Sub-tasks are typically pieces of work to finish the parent item (task or story). Ordering them without the context of the parent doesn't necessarily make sense if the parent tasks are independent work requests.
For example, let's say we have 2 parent tasks, each with sub-tasks:
If we believed that there was ordering overlap between the sub-tasks, there is probably a problem that one or more of the sub-tasks really belongs to the other parent.
I understand your point. When we face the issue I'm mentioning is when we have several people working on the same tasks that have different sub-tasks.
I'd like to order subtasks within every kanban swimlane but I can't as their parent task might be assigned to other people.
Thanks for that information, Albert. I am still trying to understand what problem you are solving by ordering the subtasks within a swimlane.
Is it for work ordering? If so, might a better way to solve this be not to start later work until the earlier work is completed?
By the way, what method are you using for swimlanes? If it is by task, you will not be able to reorder outside the lane for the parent task.
I have the same problem, something like this: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Task-Board-sorting-subtasks/qaq-p/451885
is there a way to sort the Subtasks within a kanban board? I have one kanban to track the tasks related to design (only those) and when I tried to drag and drop them to the right order, it' not possible.
I just want to order the design subtasks without affecting the parent. is that possible?
