Next-Gen Project - Sort by priority & Cards Info

Hi guys, how are you? 

I'm writing because i'm working on a next-gen project and I would like to sort the steps by priority or deadline.

Also, it will be awesome to see the priority and deadline on the cards when are close.

Could you please help me?

Hello Brian,

Thank you for getting in touch with Atlassian Community!
We are great, how about you?

Currently, it's possible only to sort the tickets by Epic and Label when using a board on next-gen projects.
Also, as we can't customize the cards, the priority does not show on open or closed tickets.
We have some feature requests suggesting the implementation of these abilities:
Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.


Hi guys,

Can i order nex-gen board card's by priority?, i mean order by default.. really helps to  choose card's from the pending list..



Hi Christian,

The option to order the cards or backlog is also not available for next-gen projects. 
Please click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature request.

Why this feature is not available? It is such an elemental feature for Product Managers

Agreed, this is an absolute core function of any software dev backlog. To have it groomed and prioritized.

Unfortunately, we'll have to move back to Classic Jira because this feature isn't available.  There are so many easy features in nextGen but alas we must say Au Revoir!

Being able to sort tickets by Epic and Priority - both in the backlog and on the board is essential - I'm struggling with Jira NextGen because of this. If you have a complex project with a big backlog it's not usable.

Hello @Angélica Luz , it's 2021, any updates on this ? I still can't sort by priority, our dev team is struggling to see the priority of the task due to a large number of tickets

Hello @jun_seki,

Thank you for reaching out to Community!

Some of the features mentioned on this thread had some updates and the one about ordering the backlog based on fields was transitioned to “Gathering interest” in February and that’s the only update for now. 

If you haven’t yet, please vote and also watch the feature to receive future updates.

Kind regards,

You can filter and order by priority from the Issue Navigator (access it by clicking "Filters" (from the top menu) -> "Advanced Issue Search" -> "+ More" -> "Priority")

To change the order just click on the priority column
