Is there a better way to reorder priority in Portfolio?

Inside portfolio, we (and everyone else I'm sure) work with a list of 100+ tickets, managing Specs and Priority on a day-to-day basis.

When we create new tickets in Portfolio, they show up at the bottom of this big list.  Frequently we'll create groups of 5 or more tickets at the same time and it seems that in order to send these to the very top, we have to drag each one, individually.

This wasn't a big deal until the list got so large that dragging a tickets takes 10 seconds.  It's becoming more of a hassle than it's worth.

Please tell me I've just missed something.

Hey Patrick,


There is another way to create tickets in your Portfolio scope table,

If you hover for 1-2 seconds on the line between 2 issues you will have an option to create issues without the need to go to the bottom of the table.

Check "option 2" in this doc:

Let me know if that helps,


Oh, that does help the immediate problem of us making these in Portfolio, thanks!

I assume this means there's not currently a faster way to reorder existing tickets?
