Re-order rows in grid via drag-and-drop and then auto-save the order

Does QuickBase have an out-of-the-box way to re-order the rows in the grid with drag and drop and then save the new order afterwards?   I found this link that does that but lacks the function to automatically save the re-order.  This is a requirement for me from my customer.

Auto re-order steps in a process | Discussions (quickbase.com)

In this demo you can drag and drop rows of a report to reorder the records:.

A little additional code could be used to add a new row or you could add a new row before invoking the drag and drop solution.

    The Kanban report type is the only report which supports native drag and drop.

    This thread here has a discussion about using the hidden Kanban sort field in other reports.

      Mark,
        Thanks for your response.  That is not going to work.  Kanban report type requires a multiple choice or User data type.  There are scenarios where I need to re-order the line items of an invoice without having to either delete each line item and re-enter them or having to add an "order" column of numeric type and then sorting by that  column.  Would be really great if QuickBase allows that.  That link I posted did just that but doesn't have the capability to save the order.   Can this be placed on the product roadmap?
