Boards - Sorting

Hi Kelvin, 

Thanks for your post.

Boards don't have a concept of sorting.  Agile Boards tend to work more from the physical drag and drop and placement of the cards on a list to manage the order that something might be looked at.  The benefit of not providing ordering is that everyone looking at the board is seeing the same list in the same order.  We might look at an idea of filtering where you could filter on priority to see where all of your Severity 1 changes are located on a board. 

Regards,

James

@Kelvin, @James Ainsworth

We use boards in both our own and other third party products, but they are what we call dynamic boards, where the swim lanes are defined by criteria/SQL and moving a entry between the swim lanes tactically initiates an action/update to the item. These also have the advantage of being able to specify a default sort order on load, but also the user can override as well.

@James Ainsworth 

Are there any plans to add dynamic elements to the boards or providing a second variant of boards, as this way items will move/update themselves so you can use them as interactive dashboard?

Cheers

Hi @Martyn Houghton

No plans at the moment.  For us the dynamic element is driven from the BPM where this can control movement between swim lanes.  I often use 'view only' boards and not allow manual moving of cards.  This ensures that the the work (updates and task completion) are done within the requests.

Having a similar function to the activity views or the document collections may conflict with the BPM movements. 

Regards,

James
