VISUAL PLANNING 5.3 DOCUMENTATION

Sort

DEFINITION

The sort function allows to order the elements of a table of resources or events into a certain organization.

It is mainly the resources into a schedule view or a resources view, but also events in the case of an events view.

USE

Sort the resources in a table mode

In a schedule view, a resources view (table mode) or an events view, sort a persistant heading is displayed via the symbol which represents a sorting in the heading.

This Sort is an alphabetical sorting for a text heading and a numerical sort for a numerical heading.
For a single choice list, the sort order will follow the order of the definition of the values. (cf. Sorting of elements of a list).

The opposite symbol represents an anti-alphabetical sort for a text heading or a decreasing sort for a numerical heading.

So, all the persistent headings, the calendars and the creation rules can be sorted.

Notice that the headings order is very important for the sorting result.

To sort:

  • Right-Click on the header of a heading > Sort.
  • Double-Click on the right part of the header of a heading.

Backup

A sort type can be registered into a favorite display.

It is sometimes possible to automatically sort the elements of a list via the Sort button.
