    Allow default sorting when downloading submissions

    Asked by corpethics on July 12, 2013 at 09:52 AM

    Hi - I have figured out that you can sort the entries on the screen, but when I export to PDF, they don't stay sorted.

    Let me add this to our Feature Request List. While waiting, I would suggest exporting the submissions in Excel or CSV format so you can use the MS Excel sorting function.
