A release gantt sorts its rows by phase date i.e., phases with earliest starting date are on top, and later start dates at the bottom. This makes visualization for a project with many different departmental tasks difficult and cumbersome. E.g., in a single release one may have a set of phases/tasks for the engineering group as well as for the marketing group, marcom group, etc. These at some point may be running in parallel and/or are synchronized to each other. With the current gantt behavior this means that they are all mixed up and a quick glance overview of the entire project and still be able to see individual departments is virtually impossible.
I would like to be able to move release phases/tasks up/down as I please i.e., a custom sorting format which each phase being colored by its assigned color in details.
