Is it possible to number tickets in the backlog?

Is it possible to turn on Numbered list in the Backlog on Scrum board? I need to know how many items are above a certain item in the backlog. Right now I am counting manually. For example I need to know when a certain bug will be fixed in the prioritized backlog, i.e. how many items need to be done before my bug will be taken into iteration.

Thank you!

your best bet would probably be to use the user stories on the right side or use labels

Hi! Thanks for answering. But I don't realy understand how user stories or labels can help me with the numbering tickets in a backlog? Can you maybe include the screenshot to your reply? Thanks a lot!
