I want to set rank of task (in numbers) by dragging and doping in in issue view automatically.

I have a long list of user stories. Then I arrange them by the rank (priority)order. From most important to the lowest ones.
The problem is, there is no "rank" field. I could, of course, add new field and add priority manually, but as priorities usually change after sprint, there would be a lot of work to rewrite it once something has changed.
So my wish would be to arrange US in priority order and that one field would automatically change due placing. As now, when i change issue place is says: 1 issue updated - what is updated here. Is there a field that changes due issue place?

I hope I made it clear. In JIRA ir is called RANKING

With dragging issues you change the order, so saved search changes. There is no such a field with tracking each time the order changes.
sort by: priority
works well. And change priories after the end of sprint?

Thank you.

I would also like to see this feature.
