    Bug Report - Number Field Does Not Sort By Number

    Asked by markashton on October 27, 2014 at 11:26 AM


    The number field does not sort by number in a grid report ... it sorts by the first number in the number.

    Honestly! ..... how can the number field not be seen as a whole number ...

    Regards Mark

    Hi markashton,

    To confirm, you would like to numbers in your grid form to be sorted by counting and not by the first number?

    I understanding wanting to have the numbers sorted based on the whole number, instead of just the first number. I have passed this information on to our developers. Any update regarding this issue will be updated to this thread.

    Thank you.

    Come on ... who wants to sort numbers by the first number in the number?

    No one in the whole of eternity ... ever!

    This is a key field in jotform quick tools ... but when you get a bunch of submissions and your client tries to sort on it to get the biggest number first ... bingo ... you look a right prat when your client says "What the hell's this?"

    A ridiculous shortcoming.

    A bug that needs a fix. Thnaks
