Custom sorting for a column in Kanban

Is it possible to have custom sorting for a column in Kanban? I created a column backlog and new requests are added to that column automatically. My problem is that they appear at the bottom while I prefer they appear at the top so that their are triaged as necesary (by moving them to the to-do column). Is this possible? Can this column be sorted by date, id or something else instead of rank? Or alternatively, can new issues start with a very high ranking?

Our Dev team is asking for this as well... did you ever find an answer?

Likewise, got this question as well. Anyone know?

Found it:

Edit and find the filter under Board(top right)->Configure->General->Filter->Edit Filter Query

Change to: project = XX ORDER BY resolutiondate DESC, rank ASC


That kills the ability to drag/drop to reorder tasks.

Try to use swimlanes under board settings and add query. This may work for you.Unbenannt.PNG
