Story Priorities

I am using the XP-Dev project management tracking system. I have written several stories and now need to prioritize my story backlog. I can’t seem to figure out a way to do this. They are just listed in the order I created them.

How do I change the order (give priority) to the stories?

The way priorities are handled is the order in which stories and bugs are listed in the Backlog or Iteration. You can reorder them (Javascript needed) by using the arrows on the right of every story/bug:

Do tell if this does not make sense and I’ll put up some more elaborate documentation/video.

EDIT: Just found an old forum topic where I discussed this briefly as well.

Might worth to place a note about it on the UI. It’s a great and important feature, but we haven’t realized this option for weeks and had to place priority-related comments to the body of the stories (Even the tooltip just says “View XY”.)

Might also worth to change the picture to an NS (or Up-Down) Arrow – would help associating to the right thing a lot easier.

Please don’t take it as negative criticism – we do like xp-dev a lot at all. :)
