Multiple columns can be sorted in a grid. The columns are sorted in the order they were selected for sorting. Start with the first column you want/need sorted, and then sort additional columns. You may need to check if other columns have also been sorted.
NOTE: If a column is sorted and then removed (hidden) from the grid, the sort for that column will still be applied. Remove any column sorting before removing (hiding) a column from a grid.
Click once on a column to sort in Ascending Order.
Click on the column a second time to sort in Descending Order.
Click on the column a third time to remove any sorting for that column.
1) Sorted by Date, then Type.
In this example, the Type does not look like it sorted properly, but that is because the Date was sorted first.
2) Sorted by Type, then Date.
In this example, the Type is sorted properly, then additionally sorted by the Date.
Think of the ability to sort multiple columns in DonorView as the Excel Custom Sort.
Multiple columns can be selected to sort, and the order that the columns are listed determines the sorting order.
If the DonorView grid has multiple columns sorted (the column name will indicate an up arrow for ascending sort and a down arrow for descending sort), that is the equivalent of the Sort by, Then by columns of Excel (see screenshots below).
For example, this is the raw Excel data.
Here are two custom sort examples.
