I was given tasks in a sequence – i need to break the sequence into groups (within the plan) – I added a text field and put the numeric numbers (sequence order) in the text field. However when I try to sort, it only sorts within the group there are located on the plan itself and won’t free form sort like an excel spread sheet.
My ask – how do I add a column that will allow a free form sort? Example – on row ID # 99 – is the sequence number 1 that is in the text field column I added, when I try to sort, instead of the sequence order going to the top of the plan (as I had wanted) it only sorts to the top of the group that it is located within. SO, it goes to position 1 – but only in its sub section.
Hope this makes sense…
Colin, have you done the following?
1. Make sure there is no “Group By” applied.
2. In the Sort window, un-check the “Keep outline structure” box.
