order backlog by due date but maintain ranking

how can i order my backlog by due date ASC, but maintain ranking to move issues up/down?  I.E. several issues have the same due date, but others have higher priority/need addressing first?

You can only sort a list by one criteria at a time - either the due date is important OR the rank, not both.  In the case of an Agile backlog, the criteria is the rank.

As a temporary measure you might like to try using a swimlane query based on the due date. Something like

duedate< +1d
duedate < +7d
duedate  < +14d
duredate <+1m

which whilst not sorting by duedate will cluster together items with a similar duedate.If there are no items matching a swimlane query then it will not show.
