ITMS/DS 7.1 - drag and drop Job building

When building a job out of existing tasks, it would be SO much faster if i could just drag and drop them from the left column into the job itself, and then also drag them around to reorder them inside the job.  Currently I have to click "add existing" and drill down into subfolders to find the task i need, and to reorder them, I have to select the task and tap the up or down arrow... waiting for it to update itself each time - very annoying when there are more than 3-4 tasks in a job! 

Also, because i often build jobs using the same tasks, or tasks from the same subdirectories, it's annoying to have to repeatedly drill down into those same folders every single time.  If I could just drag them over into the job, it'd simplify things immensely! 

Please note this suggestion is for the recently released production ITMS 7.1, not the beta.

I have made a note of the drag and drop a task into a Job to make it easier, however once inside the actual job, you _can_ drag task around to reorder them. You can move them by dragging them up or down where you want to within the job building interface.
