Order issues by duedate in scrum board backlog


for any reason, I can't order issues by duedate.

I tried to set a quick filter:

duedate <= "12w" ORDER BY duedate ASC

and the same with

due <= "12w" ORDER BY due ASC

Doesn't seem to work, though. Due dates have no order.

Hi Marc,

Could you try adding sprint is EMPTY to your query to sort backlog

duedate &lt;= "12w" AND sprint is EMPTY ORDER BY duedate ASC

Hello Taha,

thank you for your suggestion.

It seems to work partially. Some issues still don't listen to the filter, though. smile

One issue has a due date in 2016 and occured on top of the backlog, or see screenshot:

May - Aug - May.

(Time span of filter enhanced and don't worry about due dates pointing to the past ... )

Try this as suggested in one of answers https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/315394/filter-for-agile-backlog {code} duedate <= "12w" AND (Sprint is EMPTY OR sprint not in openSprints()) AND (sprint is EMPTY OR sprint not in futureSprints()) ORDER BY duedate ASC {code} {code}

Hello, tried this, but no difference, I'm afraid.
