By default, a viewlet reflects the sort method set up in the selected schema. Click any column header to sort the data by that column. The arrow immediately to the right of the column header name indicates whether the data is sorted in ascending (up arrow ˄) or descending (down arrow ˅) order. To go back to the viewlet’s default sort method, click the Default table sorting button .
If the viewlet’s schema includes both primary and secondary sort methods, arrows are displayed in both column headers. To change the primary and secondary sort methods:
- Click the header of the new column that you want to use for the primary sort method.
- Control-click (or Alt-click) the header of the column that you want to use for the secondary sort method.
After completing the steps above, if you remove the sort from one of the columns, data is sorted by the remaining column.
As stated above, to revert to the viewlet’s default sort method, click the Default table sorting button . You can also turn off all sorting by repeatedly Control-clicking or Alt-clicking each column header that has an arrow until its arrow is removed.
In version 10.5.0, if a viewlet is sorted by two columns (whether based on a schema or set manually), then clicking on a third column turns off the primary sort column. If a viewlet is sorted by one column (whether based on a schema or set manually), then when you click a second column, it is used as a secondary sort method.
Before version 10.5.0, the first time you clicked a column header other than one already used for sorting, the column that was clicked would be used for the secondary sort. You could turn off the secondary sort to revert to the primary sort method.
The example below shows a primary sort by Manager Name and a secondary sort by Channel Type.
