    Grid Listing Report: Set a specific column and sorting preference as the default one

    Asked by wyattdesigns on August 25, 2015 at 12:00 AM

    Hi. I have a grid listing report generated which I link to my site so people can see submissions (it is a sign up sheet) People are going on there and searching for their names, but the report is automatically sorted by submission date. I need to change it to where it automatically opens up as sorted by name.  I know that you can click on the header to sort by the different fields, as well as enter the "search in submissions" box, but people don't seem to get that concept. I have some pretty computer illiterate people! I just need it to be set to sort by name by default. Thanks.

    Unfortunately there is no option to set the sorting for the grid report during design time, the only available options are the ones you've mentioned.

    If needed i can submit a feature request to our Dev team but I can offer any guarantees as to when this feature will be made available
