Allow selection of Custom Fields for Reranking the Board, Compound sorting

The Rank fields provided do not adequately allow the user to order the board they way they want.  For example, I had created a custom priority field and then ranked the features by score within the priority manually.  Ranking by the standard out of the box attributes is ok, but not what is needed.  The sorting of the board is a step in the right direction, but not really useful yet.  Need a compound sort function that includes custom fields.

This should also include ranking by custom scores created within custom scorecards on Features.

    I also need to be able to rank by a custom field, and ideally also perform a secondary ranking by another custom field or a built-in field.

    absolutely!  I was so excited when I saw the announcement only to later find out it's available for built in fields such as create date, tags and others which is not great.  We have various fields such as Strategic Alignment (High, Med, Low) and other custom prioritization fields. Not having this is a bit turn off for me as I expected it to be available capability

    Ability to rank/sort by custom fields will be a great addition for my team.

    Can we please get this moved up, we have to use a custom field today to create the actual stack rank of how we want the features to flow through the Dev process.   We now have to maintain a spreadsheet, VSTS and AHA to assure that we are working in the right priority.
