Hi Billy,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!
Quick filters are based on the order that is set for the board, so if the filter of the board is ordered by rank and you create a quick filter, for example, issuetype = Story ORDER BY summary DESC, it won't work.
The only way to order stories by summary is by changing the board filter to also order by summary.

We have a feature request suggesting the implementation of the ability to rank values based on the sort order:
Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.
