Reorder stories on the Kanban board

You might want to change the order in which stories are displayed within status columns on the Kanban board.

You cannot change the order in which stories are displayed on the backlog for a Kanban team.

The order in which stories appear on the Kanban board does not indicate priority. However, it can affect the perceived priority by making stories more visible.

By default, stories are displayed in alphabetical order within each status column on the Kanban board.

When you reorder columns on the Kanban board, any changes you make are saved, so changes are retained the next time you or another user views the Kanban board. (Changes you make are not reverted when clearing the browser cache.)
