How can I re-sort the Versions in the Plan View?


I'm using the Plan view for our backlog.

There's the column where one can align "versions". Right now I have 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6 in there.

Unfortunately, 1.4 was entered later than the other two, and is now sorted beneath them in the list.

Can I change that somehow? I want 1.4 at the top.

I had the same issue.    Somewhat surprisingly, this is not a setting on the Board Configuration (where you would expect). 

What got me the result I was looking for was going to Project Administration --> <Project Name> --> Versions.  I reordered the versions in reverse order to how I wanted them displayed in the Planning View.

This put the releases in a "less natural" (for me at least) on when I was performing a Release.    However, since many more people use the Planning View than perform a Release, we went with it.  HTH
