Request: Sorting Enhancement

Two improvement requests:
1.) Multiple ways to sort (eg. Sort by Status, then by Last name)
2.) Sort grouping separately from list (Sort grouping 1-2-3, sort items in the list alphabetically)

Great ideas, I can certainly see the benefits of these suggestions

I implement workarounds when I want to do this but having this inbuilt will make life so much easier!

Ya, this is what I’m doing now to achieve grouping in a particular order and then sorting alphabetically within one of the groups:

Hi,
I found a simply way to sort list and groups alphabetically.
In my app I have Category, subcategory and names.
I have an inline list with names. I group them in subcategory.

To sort both groups and names alphabetically I just create a template column who concatenate “category subcategory name”. Elements are sort alphabetically first regarding the category, then the subcategory and finally the name so if you look for a subcategory, “names” in it are sort alphabetically too.

Finally I display the “sort by” to this template column and I display the “group by” to the subcategory.

Hope this can help :wink:
