Sort / re-order Feature listed in the Master Features view

Master Features as Epics provide additional organizational leverage by grouping together related Features / Stories. Part of that benefit is lost, however, since the enclosed Features appear to be randomly organized within the Master Features in both the drawer and detail views.

It'd be great if those could be re-ordered the way that Requirements are for Features, or could be sorted by some logical metric. Currently it's not clear to me what the metric is that's being used (if any) for sorting.

Also, unrelated, there's no category for Master Features in the ideas portal yet...

    Thank you for your idea. This is not currently planned on our roadmap but we will continue to monitor customer feedback here. 

    In the meantime, a flexible option for viewing features by master feature would be using a custom pivot table. You could then use custom sorting to organize the features how you need them. This would provide the additional advantage of being able to view multiple master features and their related features in a single view or to filter down to a specific master feature when needed.

    This would be very helpful to us, too.

    Please reconsider this from future to doing it now. My knowledge of this change is about a 5p to complete and the value is much more beneficial to the effort and time to complete

    Fully agree. We now use numbers (starting in multiples of 10 to have some flexibility in adding features in between later on) at start of every feature, but it costs time and it's sometimes confusing for users since the feature number is immediately followed by the sortorder. Making this sortable would be really appreciated.

    In the mean time we'll have a look at your custom pivot table suggestion.

    agree with Tom Beck (and thanks for pointing out its alphabetical)! drag and drop would be a very useful addition!

    Two things happened today that reminded me of this.  First, someone was asking me how to change the order of the features within a master feature.  I had to tell them that they are sorted alphabetically by title and there's no other sorting options.  Second, I was just re-ordering requirements within a feature via drag-n-drop and then realized that I could actually do that!  Perhaps there's are architectural differences between requirements, features, and master features that is an impediment, but it sure would make master features better if we could move the features around like we can with requirements.
