Rerank feature board by any feature attribute

Currently the options by which you can rerank the Feature Board are fixed to a set number of attributes.

I would often like to rerank the Features in my releases by date (start on/due) or even a Feature custom field.

It would be great if the Feature Board could be re-ranked by any feature attribute that is available within the system.

    I was very surprised that this capability to rerank the feature board by any available attribute did not already exist. Similar to other users commenting, we use a custom field for ranking. Being able to display the features in that order is important. Tried doing this in a roadmap feature listing as well, but that didn't have an option for it either.

    Adding this capability would be a game-changer for us. We have implemented a custom priority field that shows up on the record layout, but we would love this to be set / modified via the drag/drop capabilities in the Features Board or the Prioritization view.

    We would like to have the option to rank features under released by Jira Rank (Customize number field in Aha! sync from Jira). This will be helpful to display the features in Aha! in the same order as they do in Jira.

    At the moment, we are using Smartsheet for stack ranking our features as it's much easier to sort & re-order than it is in Aha. We've tried the score card however none of the PMs liked it. For the Feature Board, PMs would like to use their own Feature custom field "Stack Rank" to re-order their features once it's ready to be in CC & EC.

    We too would like to see the rank sync with Azure DevOps. the Order can go to Stack rank from Aha, but when Dragging and dropping the feature in ADO the Stack Rank changes but doesn't come back to Aha to 're-order' the Stack Rank (while odd) is still numerically in order, but doesn't follow the 'ordered' numbering of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 any more and doesn't adjust the priority order in Aha.

    This causes A LOT of manual back and forth for the Product Leaders within both tools to make sure that the development teams are really working on the highest priority item as expected by our Product team. Having a priority order synchronization is pivotal to backlog Management.

    This would be really useful for keeping Aha in sync with Azure Devops - I'm currently mapping the stack rank from AD into Aha, but being able to rank the cards by that value would let us see the same list of priorities in both systems

    We use Aha actively integrated with Jira and in order to keep both tools sync regarding priority, we need this feature

    Fully agree that this is needed. We are using a number of different custom 'score' metrics but we only have the option of sorting by the Aha! score, which is a field that we don't use!

    Just being able to rank by default system fields (like Due Date) would be helpful

    I fully agree with this, the ability to rerank based on a custom field would allow you to prioritize your features by typing a number, rather than by dragging which a) is cumbersome when working with a release with many features and b) can easily happen by accident, and difficult to detect.

    Further to reranking based on any field available, it should also be possible to decide whether you wish to sort ascending or descending - if I want to sort by a custom field, I may want to sort the smallest number on top, or if I use a date I may want to see the oldest feature on top.


Sort Feature rank in Board view within release by Custom Field (from Rally integration)

We list our features on the Product - Feature - Board view Currently these features are ranked by what AHA allows us to sort by default AHA fields However we use many custom fields that are not part of AHA (one such field is a numeric field we g...

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 ...

Ability to rank features on board based on custom field value

Currently, there are a limited number of fields to 'rank' features. It would be great, especially during an exploration phase, to be able to quick rank based on different custom to see how they stack when pulling different levers.

Feature Board - Sort based on Custom Field (or a bulk reordering option) instead of Aha rank

We integrate with TFS and the entire backlog is prioritized there. However, the Features Board in Aha uses 'rank' (which is set based on where the card is on the Board) and cannot be quickly changed when you have 20-60 cards in a release at any gi...
