How can i prioritise projects? Has anyone got a different approach?

We have a steady number of projects sitting in Jira On Demand (usually around 40) some have a short turnarounds eg 1 day and some that have a longer turn around 1 year+. We review project priorities on a weekly sometimes daily basis and need some way to order or prioritise projects for our teams in a similar fashion you can order or prioritise issues within a project. IS there a way to do this? The only basic way i have found to do this is to set up categories so something like > In Progress | To Do | On hold. This gives us a basic overview but dosnt allows us to prioritise the Projects within the categories. Does anyone have a different approach to this?

JIRA OnDemand does not provide functionality to priotitise projects. Though the project categories can provide you with something similatr to some degree, this is not what the categories were intended to get used for. I can not provide you with an alternative means to accomplish the same goal.
