Ranking Field order in GreenHopper

Is there a way to change the Rank numbers for the Rank field? It seems that the system automatically assigns a number which is large, example 2040. It would be nice when you start a new sprint you were given a new Ranking order just for that Sprint. For example start with 10, etc. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Also is there a way to display the Rank Field in the Card or List View in GreenHopper? When you drag & drop the cards it would be nice to see each card Ranking number. You can view this in the Issue Navigator, but needs to be shown in GreenHopper.

the rank is not sprint specific. It is globally set for the project and can change every time you reorder your issues in the planning board. Ranking is just the order of the issues and is set automatically 'behind the scenes'. The value of the ranking field does not say anything at all, it is simply an order, so why display it ?

Best regards
