I'm new to Jira and I'm evaluating the Next Gen Proj Board.
I've some task in my board with subtask, which in my case should be ordered to improve their readability. Can't understand if there is a way to do this or not.
Can you help me?
@Francesca G. @Mark Preston @Petter Gonçalves @Leonard_Plotkin @Herve Leung-Tack we've just introduced ranking in the issue view! There are a couple of places for us to add real time updates being reflected across the views but the majority is in place now. Let me know if you have any further questions :)
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
I understand that you would like to group the Sub-tasks below their parent task in your Next-gen board. Have I understood it correctly?
To do it, you can click on the Group By drop-down on the right side of the board and choose Sub-task:
By default, the order of the sub-tasks below their parent will be based on the issue key (ABC-1, ABC-2, etc).
Now, if you are looking for a way to change that default order of the sub-tasks, I'm afraid it is not possible because they are based on the board filter that you can not customize in Next-gen projects. In fact, we have a feature request opened for that here:

Hi Petter and thanks for your reply,
actually, I was trying to sort the subtasks in the task detail view as, regardless the time they've been added to the task, their procedural order may differ. In my opinion, the glance view of the task detail should provide an idea of what should be done and in which sequence. I am certainly inexperienced with Jira, but this is a goal which I have not (yet) been able to achieve. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks again
I am kinda experienced with Jira and used the subtasks heavily for detailed planning of user stories. I would never have expected that this approach would be impossible in next-gen projects... Having the correct order only in the overall board view and being constantly confused by the wrong order in the detailed view doesn't sound like a viable alternative.
Thank you for all the insights and feedback on this matter.
Indeed, the wrong order displayed under the active board section is not expected behavior for Next-gen projects. In fact, we have reported it as a bug so our development team can check it out:

Jira is a powerful tool that helps teams to plan, manage, and report on their work. We love using Jira, especially for its ability to track issue progress. But how to monitor the...
