Gantt Chart Issues List Order

Hi there,

The list of issues is in wrong order, so I get gantt chart where last tasks to be completed appear first while the first one appear last at the bottom. Is it possible to sort the issues in correct order somehow without need to re-create them?

By default, issues are ordered by creation date so newer will be on top, unless they have other dependencies declared. Changing default sort order will be possible in configuration, there's already an issue created for this:

Well... I think issues should be ordered by creation date AND time :)... as all my issues have exactly the same creation date, however the time is different (which is logical) and I get the order in a wrong (unintended) way... My order is as follows:
- Issue 3 - 02/16/2014 01:17PM
- Issue 2 - 02/16/2014 01:15PM
- Issue 1 - 02/16/2014 01:13PM


Yes, that's how it works now. Issues are ordered by date & time in descending order, so the last one you have created will be on top.

I think it should go the opposite way as in most cases the last one one creates should be the last one in the gantt chart... Another way would be great if the list items in the gantt chart get ordered based on the start date and duration so that we can get visually better overview.

Hello Hajan,

You can now change the default order using custom JQL. More details here:
