I am not currently sure how versions are ordered on the Gantt chart for each project but it doesn't appear to make much sense because I have versions with start dates (start date of earliest issue) next year appearing above one with start dates next month which rather breaks the flow.

Would it be possible to either

A) Order versions for each project on the Gantt in order of earliest issue start date with earlier versions at the top (blank/nil at the end)

B) Allow uses to define a start date manually in the project settings tab and just order based on that.

C) Allow users to order versions arbitrarily in the project settings tab.

#1 Updated by Jeffrey Jones over 11 years ago

Just figured it out I think. It appears to currently order them by the earliest issue ID for each version. Again a date based ordering would make more sense.

#2 Updated by Tobias Droste about 10 years ago

Attached is patch that orders issues by their start date and versions by their due date (seems to me the most sensible thing to do)

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Duplicate

I close this issue as duplicate with #7335 because #7335 has more discussions.
