Control row sort order

You can control the order in which a view's rows are displayed, except for Map and Chart views.

For an example, see the How to sort template.

To control sort order:

  1. Open the app in the editor.
  2. Go to App > Views.
     We've made some improvements to the app editor, currently in preview.
    You are opted in to the new editor by default, but you can switch back to the legacy editor at any time.

    If you are using the legacy navigation

    Go to UX > Views.  
  3. Expand the view that you want to sort.
  4. In the Sort by field, click Add to add a column to sort by.
  5. Select Ascending (that is, AAA is shown before ZZZ) or Descending (that is, ZZZ is shown before AAA) order.
  6. Repeat to add additional columns to sort by.
  7. When you are done, save the app by selecting one of the following:
    • Save - Save the app
    • Save & verify data - Save the app and verify the data defined.
