Kanban Board: View/Pivot by different categories

The new kanban board is great, but I would love to be able to pivot it by different categories other than the "assignee" and have the order of the cards be faithfully reflected within each of the categories.  I can see the use for pivoting by a whole host of fields, including custom fields.  For example: we have a custom field for urgency and it would be really helpful if we could pivot by urgency to maintain our focus.  Another helpful pivot would be time elapsed since creation (days, weeks, months, years), and so on.

    Custom fields would be very valuable for us.  We have a custom field "Team" which is used to sync with Jira and it would be great to be able to use Team for the swim lanes. I could use this feature like yesterday.

    Pivoting on custom fields would be pretty amazing, pivoting on anything but users seems critical (including in only one lane). Kanban isn't really usable given that we have so many users.

    Definitely interested in seeing this added! 

    Pivot reports are fine for displaying all this information, but they aren't the great for actually making quick updates to the status or assignees (or whatever the rows are set to be; the drag & drop functionality of the workflow board is key!).
