The backlog is ordered by default by rank and we have the rank functionnality to have the drag n drop functionnality.
But is it possible to sort by rank ASC and by priority DESC and have the drag n drop functionnality ?
because when we add the priority sorting we don't have anymore the drag n drop.
Ordering by Rank ASC is a requirement for the drag&drop to work; no workarounds for that.
The best you can do is reordering them manually, possibly by taking advantage of multiple selection capability > mouse right click > send to top/bottom.
It doesn't sound intuitive...if i filter by name and description I would expect a sorted list by name and in case of same name a second sort by description...
I think similar pattern should apply when sorting by rank ASC and by priority DESC,
First sort by rank and when the rank is the same sort by priority...therefore the first time i apply the rank filter all elements should have same rank(since i have not drag&drop any element yet) and a second sort should apply based on the next order by criteria...no?
I think there could be added feature to rank items around the same priority level only. For example lets have 3 items of high priority - currently Jira decides about the order while I sort with priority. Would be great if I could change the rank of the 3 items because I want the last one on the list to be done first.
To summarize I would have items ordered automatically by different priorities and ranked inside of each priority lvl. Of course ranking items between different priorities could be restricted.
Thanks, can you help a bit on to use ranking? Is it just the manual order that you put your self in the dashboard backlog, when I add the field it look more like a code than a usable thing for user.
Ok so I just made a work around.
I created false sprints for each of my rankings.
Then I ran a filter with order by priority asc .. which then sorted my backlog quickly. Then selected all of the Must Have's right clicked and added them to the false sprint Must Have.
And then I did the same for Should Have, Could Have and Won't Have.
Then changed the backlog filter back to order by rank asc
So now the false sprints act like group by
