Sort features board

Is there any way to sort the features on the board rather than having to go into the details or List view to sort? We want to see the features presented in a particular order (score, status, etc.) in the board view to see all releases together and enable faster drag and drop of items from the backlog to a release based on a particular attribute.

    We have launched a new capability on the Features board which now allows you to automatically rerank features in each release by score, status, estimate and other criteria.

    Please read more about it here.

    Yes heartily agree/support this! I'd love to be able to default set our boards to prioritize by Aha Score. A more advanced sort that would lead with Aha score, then fit by remaining capacity would be even cooler.

    yes! we use the feature board really heavily... our backlogs have 100+ items. it would be GREAT to sort that list by score, then be able to manually move everything around.

    Any idea when this will be implemented? We could really do with this feature for our 400+ backlog

    This would be very cool and would provide some consistency between the Detail view and the Board view.  (I'll look for another idea but I also think that I should be able to edit the card layout on/from the features board just like I can in the Detail view -- another inconsistency.)

    In the Details view, I can set a filter and it will carry over onto the Board view.  Like it.  The sorting option should apply the same way.  If I choose to sort by score in the Details view then the Board view should also sort by score.  It's like you carry over some features from one view to the next but not all.  Inconsistent.

    We definitely need this. We have several departments that score the items in the parking lot, and need to be able to sort these items automatically by their combined score to make it easier to pull top scoring items into a release. Having to do this manually is extremely time consuming when you are managing a multitude of features whose scores are periodically updated.

    I just contacted support about this: thought I could not figure it out.  Disappointed that it's not there as we use boards for roadmap planning where the score is the main driver.  I would like to sort by score and then manually drag and drop if I need to.

    I got the email letting me know this is Shipped. Does Shipped mean it's released? Or does it mean it will be in an upcoming released?

    We're sorry for the mix-up here. This idea was inadvertently marked as shipped. However, we are currently in development on the new capability and plan to deliver it soon.

    There are advantages to the feature you shipped because it enables the sorting many of us were looking for.  Unfortunately, it permanently changes the fine-tuned ranking.  I would have preferred to optionally change the ranking permanently.  Thanks for listening.

    I love this new feature, but I wish we could tell it which score we want it to sort on. I presume that it is using the aha score right now, but that score doesn't match the way we work so it would be really nice to tell it which score we want it to sort on.
