Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but reordering the backlog by dragging and dropping seems to be more of a faff than it should be.
I have a 'big' backl,og on a project I've just started managing.
If I have to move stuff about I'm limited to dragging it within the page of results I've got. Either that or I canb move it to the top/bottom using the priority button options, but that's about it.
If I want to move something up the order so it goes from page X to page X-1 I have to:
- Drag the item to the 2nd row (dragging to the top doesn't appear to work)
- Use the Priority button to move it up to row 1 then again to move it up to become the last row in page X-1
This becomes even more of a PITA is I'm trying to drag multiple items.
Other than turning off paging, I can't suggest a way of improving the experience, but I'm sure that the Big Brains at Telerik Towers can come up wiith something.
