Issues are sorted by ID in the Gantt chart.
It would be nice to be able to change and save the display order of the issues in Gantt.
Today, a workaround is to duplicate the current issue to make it the last one, but this is not convenient at all.

I would love this feature, it would really improve the functionality of the Gantt charts.

You mean something like a planning board?

Very much so, give the user the ability to create their own priority of tasks in the Gantt. This, along with collapsible parent tasks would be stellar, more for project managers or teamleaders etc that may have a lot of different tasks that are maybe not assigned to them, but still need to be able to see the big picture.

So I envision the following:

  • Collapsible parent tasks, maintaining the timeline of the child tasks as is
  • Child tasks are still displayed under parent tasks - if a parent task is moved then the children are still under it
  • Child tasks can be moved within the parent task

It could possibly be taken one step further allowing tasks to be moved between parent tasks etc by using the Gantt chart as a sort of management console but I dont think that functionality is as important as being able to move things around within the original constraints.
