Reorder user stories on Scrum Board

Another long waited feature was to enable reorder user stories on Scrum Board. This is done in a way that each user story has priority in sprint backlog. The top item has priority 1. If you want to move first user story to position 5, then simply write in priority box value 5 and press enter. Your user story will be moved to position 5, while all other user stories will be adjusted accordingly. Since top user story is moved at lower postion, the second user story will become position number 1. We don’t swap the user stories, but just adjust the order.
