Tempo Filter - Tempo Timesheets Overwrites Filter Order to Sort by Issue Key Instead

I have a custom "to-do list" filter setup for the current sprint for my team which includes all their tasks in the sprint. This filter orders tasks by a custom ordering field I have called "Weight" which has a 0 to 100 value for how important a task. The filter displays the task values closest to 100 at the top.

Unfortunately, when I have "Show Issues Lists" in Tempo timesheets bring up the sprint task filter that I use, it overwrites my filter order to instead sort by "key" (lowest key value to highest). The grouping category also doesn't seem to have anything that really helps with ordering by task priority. 

I know there is a place on export to include custom fields that I can sort by, but it doesn't fill the need for my team to let them quickly check their priorities. They can check the filter on their dashboard for priorities, but if these two lists matched, that would make things consistent.

Is there any way I can prevent Tempo Timesheets from overwriting my filter? Or have it sort by anything else (e.g. rank)?


The closest thing I've found to my issue is the link below, but the bug link doesn't seem to exist anymore, so maybe I just haven't found where this functionality lives?

I will be watching this question.... We WANT to sort by key. It was  up until this week and now it is sorting by Issue. I haven't found anyplace that allows us to change the sort order, so I'm hoping that someone will respond with an answer for that. Good luck with your filter!

Thank you! Definitely having the ability to sort by any variable would be helpful to many teams that use this. 

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. The timesheets used to sort by key, but as of late, it sorts by issue. Now, this wouldn't be a problem if it didn't reset the sort order every time you refresh the view, by pressing F5 or by logging hours into it.
