Better view of non-prioritized work items
We're currently thinking about a way of managing work items that have not yet been prioritized in your product backlog. We know that, sometimes, it's a bit difficult to find a newly created item that you want to prioritize: they get lost in all the numerus items of your backlog.
Let's say that I'm the Product Owner. I just created a bunch of stories under multiple Features in the Product Management. I now have to prioritize them for my team to know what to work on. Below is what I would see when I load the Product Backlog:

So we what we tried to do here is group non-prioritized work items in a single list at the top of the backlog. This list will show all types of work items.
[caption id="attachment_3334" align="alignnone" width="630"] Click the image to zoom[/caption]
When you drag a work item, a drop zone appears over your backlog. This zone will only be shown once to indicate new users where to drop the work item. We thought that it would be annoying to see it every single time you drag & drop an item.
The list would be shown by default, but you could always close it.
So, tell us what you think of this proposition.
