    Unable to sort form submissions by IP.

    Asked by Thaluke on October 30, 2013 at 09:02 AM

    I can sort any other category (ascending/descending) but not IP adresses.

    It just greyed out and not clickable.

    Any reason why its not sortable by IP?

    Thanks for contacting us.

    I have tested the IP method to sort the submissions, but as you said it is not clickable. However, that is the way it works,it cannot be sorted out by IP addres as following a sequential order, like the alphabetical order, the IP allows you to know the IP address number only.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    The answers to my form are stacking up and not beeing able to sort by IP is giving me some problems, and its obviously going to get worse as more form answers drop in.

    I might have to change to something that can sort IP.

    I suggest creating a Report for your form's submissions instead. This way you can have sorting function on any of the column you required from the form's submission data.

    Please check this guide How-to-create-an-HTML-Table-Listing-Report on how to create a report.

    Inform us if you need further assistance on these.
