    Hello Jotform!

    Is there a way to get my table to automatically sort by a certain field so that we don't have to give instructions to our user in how to "sort"?  

    For instance, here is our page: http://www.thyroidchange.org/patient-recommended-doctor-list-us.html

    As you can see, it is a list of doctors and it is very popular - getting thousands of hits each week. Our users will only be wanting to search for doctors within their state and nothing else.  However, with the current table, we have to place some instructions on how to do this (see page for instructions).  Also, it appears that users cannot use the sort feature with mobile devices.  We frequently get messages saying that the sort feature doesn't work and then we find out they are using their phones to view the list.  it would be great if it could automatically sort by the "State" field so that there was no confusion.  

    Is there a way around this?

    Thank you so much for your help!

    Hello Denise,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to auto sort the table listing report or any report. By default the submissions are sorted based on the submission time.

    Thank you!
