I should be able to: sort elements manually in my kanban view, and have that ordering accessible as data.

For example: If I have 20 items in my TODO column, and I re-arrange them based on priorities I have with my team (highest priority on top) by moving them up and down in the column, I want to know that priority later. I can’t find a way to determine that ordering within the column right now.

This would be helpful! Unfortunately, there is no built-in way to do this in Airtable, because it doesn’t remember your sort order from one view to the next. As you mentioned, you would have to create your own additional field to keep track of the sort order numbering. You might be able to partially automate the filling in the values of that new field.
