Define Record Sorting

This page is applicable to all report types except pivot chart and pivot table.
The report builder enables you to sort records in a list report based on the field values. The report loads with the sorting in place. This is a predetermined sequencing of data that is independent from the sorting options available in the report.

To sort records in list report:

  1. Navigate to the Design page.
  2. Hover on the preview of the report.
  3. Click Open Report Properties.

  4. Select Sorting.

  5. Select the required field based on which the records are sorted.
  6. Click Add.

  7. Click Done to exit builder.

Upon accessing the report in the application, you will find that the records are sorted based on the selected field.
