Sort Individual Board Columns OR Allow Override Sort

It would be helpful to apply different sorts to different board columns.

To give context, I use my Asana boards as Kanban boards with columns like Backlog, To Do, In Progress, Done, etc. It’s helpful to see items in To Do by date, which your board sort currently does. Unfortunately, sorting the Backlog, In Progress, and Done by date doesn’t make the most sense, and right now it’s all-or-nothing.

There could be 2 ways to solve this issue:

  1. Allow specific sorting per column instead of the entire board.
    OR
  2. Have an option to sort everything manually but then from there you are still free to move things around with drag-and-drop, the way you can when no sort is enabled.

I doubly think this would be helpful. In the situation where you have a SCRUM board the completed column would be best updated on “Last Updated” or a “Completed” field while everything else should be due date.
