Re-prioritizing individual records from a returned set

I am trying to find the easiest and/or correct way to re-prioritize a set of returned records for a specific day. For instance, we are sorting out a list of records (work orders) with today's date for a view of our daily production board where the records (orders) are assigned to specific employees. The records are listing fine as we currently have it in the example below.

 

(Employee 1)

Record1

Record2

Record3

(Employee 2)

Record1

Record2

Record3

Record4

(Employee 3)

Record1

Record2

 

We are able to move the records between employees by selecting the assigned employee on the record itself and we have the script re-sorting on data entry but now we want to be able to move those records up and down within an assigned employee's list depending on the changing priorities of the day. For instance, (Employee 1) Record3 moves to the top of their list above Record1 and Record2. We want to be able to create an up and down button that will move those records up and down on the specific employee's list. They are currently listing out in numeric order by the order# field on the record.

 

I know the information on the sort scripts we are running is vague and we are very new to development but any help down the right path would be greatly appreciated!
