    Sorting icon not working properly

    Amit Darak

      Hi,

       

      I have attached image of a issue I am facing in Dashboard.

       

      I have 3 columns which I need to sort individually.

       

      When I click on 1st column's sorting icon on top, it gets sorted at once.

       

      But when I do the same for 2nd and 3rd column, it does not get sorted at once. I have to click 3 times on the sorting icon, marked in Red oval to get proper sorting.

       

      Any idea as to why is this happening?Sort_error.PNG

          Hi Amit,

           

          Consider you have the data like below

           

          Dimension     Value1     value2     value3

          A                        10          5               9

          B                         7            9               0

          C                         12          6                4

           

          Consider  you click on the value 1 sorting  your data looks like this

           

          Dimensionvalue1Value2value3
          C1264
          A1059
          B790

           

          based on the value 1 got sorted out

           

          Now when you click value 2 means you are releasing the sorting value 2 and it shows the data in descending order once again if you click on value 2 it shows data in ascending order and 3rd click it will remove the sorting

           

          Hypothetically sorting the same dimension on different at same time is not possible

           

          Hope this helps kindly mark this answer as correct/helpful so that it will help others

              Hi,

               

              Actually there is also an icon on bottom for sorting, which worked fine. I don't know how, but it is working just on 1 click.
