Task Board - sorting subtasks


our custommer wants to sort the subtasks in the Task Boards but not the parent Tasks.

When we use the sorting from the Manage menu it sorts just the parent Tasks. We need to sort just the subtasks inside the parent Tasks.

I think you can only change the order of the subtasks in the planning board (drag and drop them to the right order underneath the parent task). If you change it there, they get the same order in the task board.

Best regards


Thanks Thomas, but our custommer wants different sorting in Planning Board and Task Board. We need another way to sort theese Subtasks without affecting the Planning Board.

I guess that is not supported.
