Changing the WBS display sort order

Changing a fixed display order 

To change the WBS sort order, click the header of the item to be re-sorted. One click sorts the list in ascending order; two clicks sorts the list in descending order.
* The same sort order will also be used for the parent issue.

Sorting in arbitrary order

Sort with drag-and-drop

You can move tasks to any location with drag-and-drop.

Sort by using the operations bar

You can move tasks as follows:

  1. Select the task you want to move

  2. Click Edit on the operations bar

  3. Choose Move up or Move down

You cannot move to different nodes when sorting with the operations bar.

Sort with keyboard shortcuts

You can move tasks as follows:

  1. Select the task you want to move

  2. Press Alt + ↑ (Alt + Shift + ↑ for Mozilla based browsers), or Alt + ↓ (Alt + Shift + ↓ for Mozilla based browsers)

You cannot move to different nodes when sorting with keyboard shortcuts.


If you create an arbitrary order by drag-and-drop, up and down, the WBS code is renumbered automatically and immediately. Note that the WBS code is not changed by sorting in ascending/descending order of columns.

If you want to return to the display in the arbitrary order, please sort by WBS code (# in the header).

Changing an arbitrary sort order to a fixed sort order

You can make an arbitrary sort order into a fixed sort order (WBS code) by following the procedure below:

  1. Click Edit on the operations bar

  2. Select Renumber WBS code (#)

Changing a column view

To adjust the width of a column, drag the right edge of a column. To hide columns, uncheck the column you wish to hide in the sub-menu of the header menu.
To change the order of the columns, click in the middle of each column and drag and drop it to the desired location.

The column width, order, and display on/off status are stored on the server for each user.
The changed column display is restored the next time the page is accessed.
