Sort Columns Alphabetically

Jun 17, 2010 at 3:33 PM

We downloaded this tool and it fits all of our needs except one.  Is there a way to sort all of the available choices under the columns so that they all appear alphabetically?  For example, on your sample screenshot the options under "Document Type" appear to be sorted by the first letter in each choice (Agenda, Discussion, Minutes, Procedure).  But the choices under the "Original Author" column appears to be sorted in a random order.  It would be nice to have the option to perform an alpha sort all the columns.

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback. That's a good idea - and I think you're right, those entries aren't sorted yet (or, to be precise, they're sorted in some internally meaningful way that isn't very meaningful to the user!)

 

I will look into how much work is needed to sort the column entries - it would seem logical to sort alphabetically, with an option to reverse the sort direction in the options (Z-A instead of A-Z). Would that fit the bill for you?
