    Is it possible to set a default sort order in a grid or a submissions list?

    I would like to sort by a particular column so that when users open the grid, that will be the sort order they see.

    Unfortunately, the way the Grid listing reports data is pushed to the report in the same order it is collected in your form.  Changing the order of your fields in your form is the only way to change the order they are presented in the Grid report.  It is possible to edit which fields are shown in the report but not the order in which they are shown.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
