We all agree that: "Sorting should be as easy as a Child's Play"

since the dawn of mass computing, which was 25+ years ago, people got used to this capability of easy sorting which was offered by basic softwares such as Lotus Notes, Excel etc.

 

Now Tableau being an advanced BI tool has such a poor sort which is heavily crazily weird.

 

Sorted Pills never show accurate sort, re-positioning the pill on dashboard results in mismatch sort, partition based sorting is confusing and hide/unhide sorted pills is not accurate either, Complex sorting is worst of all, not to mention Simple Sorting is not so reliable when underlying data got refreshed,

 

Its a fruitless waste of time for tableau developer when sort cannot work at all.

 

All in all it gave a frustrating experience with sorting.

 

WHY ????

 

WE WANT:

Give Tableau the ability to do "Excel Like" sort. It should be able to sort any column and have it sorted all rows instead of sorting based on the leftmost column.

Furthermore more than one column sort is also needed, a sort order should be generated based on the order of the columns you selected.

 

WHAT DID WE GOT SO FAR:

A CRAPPY TOOL WHICH CANNOT CUSTOM SORT AS EXPECTED
