    Small bug in sort order GRID reports ?

    Asked by besam on October 19, 2011 at 04:57 AM

    Is this a bug in the GRID report ? 

    When I will view the Grid in a browser, I can sort all subscriptions in ascending or descending order (using small arrow in colum heading). And yes, the data will be sorted promptly.

    But in our case - we have many pages of subscriptions - the sort will only be done for the data of the current page. So not a descending order of ALL subscriptions...

    I have recreated the issue here & I see what you mean. 

    I have submitted a request for our developers to have a look at this.

    Hello Besam,

    I have been looking at your submissions again for your form 'Ice Hotel - VLAAMS' more closely. Can you please have another look at this possible sorting issue?

    Double make sure that it is actually occuring. Its possible with that form getting so many submissions & with them being so close together in time, that you're assuming that they are not being sorted properly when in fact they are. 

    Please let us know if you are still seeing some kind of a problem and/or if you are happy with the sorting functionality now.

    Hi fxr

    I have just tested it again and the same problems will occure.
    It's NOT the sorting way of the date/time field. That's correct. For the whole report

    But when you'll choose to sort on any other field it happens.

    Try to sort on "woonplaats" (location - last colum) you'll get the ascending order. Right - But only for the actual page... When you go to the next page, all pages will be sort from A -> Z for each individual page. 

    Hope you'll see what I mean :-)

    Yeah. Got it. Great explanation. 

    Managed to replicate it exactly.

    I have submitted a detailed report for our developers to have a look at, so that we can get this fixed up.
