    Grid/Table report: Ability to default sorting the table based on other fields on the form than the submission date

    Asked by WheelsofJustice on May 13, 2017 at 12:40 PM

    I know it can be sorted afterwards, but I would like the initial output to be sorted alphabetically

    Please be noted that the reports are sorted based on the submission date by default. At this moment, it is required to sort the table by clicking on the field that you wanted to sort. Let me forward this thread to our backend team as a feature request for evaluation. I cannot guarantee that the feature will be implemented or cannot provide any ETA at this moment. However, if there is any update in this regard, we'll post it here.

    Thank you!
