Is it possible to order the issues in a column in the Kanban Board View?

I'd love to be able to change the order that cards appear in a column in Kanban view. I have a column for "Options" to select for development (backlog) and I'd like to be able to order that column by votes or by priority. Is that possible, and I've just not found it yet?

If you go into the board configuration you can edit the filter the Kanban board is based on to order the issues by any field or combination of fields that you like. Note this is usually defaulted to the ranking field to have all issues prioritised by rank but you can use any field. 

Note however that this order will apply across all columns not just backlog column. 



That'll do for my needs. Thanks!

Glad it was a nice easy solution for you and thanks for accepting my answer.
