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?

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

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.
