I have a kanban board that is showing issues and their subtasks and we like having the swimlanes set to be the story. (This is because we are focusing on the subtasks).
However, I can't figure out how to re-rank the main stories on the same board: I can't drag and drop the stories (which are swimlanes).
I have figured out that I can create a separate kanban board called "sorting" (which has NO swimlanes) and use that board behind the scenes to re-rank my stories... then when I refresh my main board the stories are sorted to match the changes I made on my other board.
Is there a better way to re-sort my swimlanes (which are my stories) on my main kanban board?
Unless you add a sortable field to your project, there is unfortunately no better way. Actually if you're just looking to have a singular board, you can use a Scrum board for your Kanban team. Then you can rank your stories in the backlog and they will be in the same order. The only catch to that is, you have to have an active sprint in order to use the Work/Active Sprints mode.
