    Customers / Support

    A customer last week requested an enhancement because they were unable to sort on a specific column on a table. In this case, the customer wanted to sort on the Item column in the Edit Requisitions table. 

    Simple Tip:

    To sort a specific column that is not already sortable on the table (you would know this because you would not see ap and down arrows in the column header when hovering over it), simply navigate to View > Sort by selecting that desired column. So even if sort is not enabled on the table column by default, you can still use this specific action to sort.

    This specific customer found this helpful because this specific table did not have an Export to Excel function and so sorting by the desired column gave them the results they were looking for.

    While this is a relatively simple and probably known feature, sometimes it helps to remind ourselves that we ought to explore the available application pages better to help serve us better.
