Hi @Krysty Emery ! What are you currently using to indicate the priority of a card? For example labels, custom fields, something else? There are different ways to sort lists based on what you're using to represent priority. For example, if you're using a numerical custom field (e.g. 1, 2, 3) to rank cards, you can simply sort your list based on this field (click the ellipses on your list and you'll see the option to sort cards).

You can also do this in a more automated way using Butler automation so that when a new card is added to a list, it's sorted automatically. 

Happy to provide more details depending on your method of tracking priority :)

I am using the priority field.

So it's a custom dropdown field? You can sort lists using a dropdown custom field, but it will be sorted alphabetically, so you could have the options numbered like so:

1. High
2. Med
3. Low

A couple of options for auto-sorting - one option is triggered when a card is moved into a list:

The above example is just for one particular list, so you can then apply that rule to all relevant lists. 

Another option is having a board button like so:

Hi, no, its the existing standard template priority field that is built in already.  Open a card, you will see the priority field.

There's the suggested custom fields if that's what you mean?
