Re rank of open work items. Is there any automated function?

CLM 603.


I had 50 open items. 28 are now closed. The ranking shows 1, 4, 5, 6, 15, 21, etc....Is there a way for me to rank what's left 1-22 in an "automated" faction? Do you have to just keep manually re-ranking by dragging and dropping?

As I understand the issue is the rank is "unorderly" and the question is if that can be easily fixed. At some point "Apply Rank Above" was introduced. and there is also Remove Rank. This allows to rank in the order of display and avoid gaps. In 6.0.3 The ranking tries to prevent gaps if possible. See image below.

It is impossible to create custom automation for ranking as ranking is part of planning which does not provide any APIs.
