Sorting the fields in a List

You can sort a List by the content of one or more of its fields.

To sort the fields

  1. Execute the Angle that contains the Display (see Executing an Angle or Template ). The Angle results page opens.

  2. Find the Display in the Displays pane . If there are many Displays, the Display tab of the Display might not be immediately visible. In that case, click to see the list of available Displays and find your Display there.

  3. Left-click the column header of the field that you would like to sort by and select one of the sorting options.

    • Sort ascending - Select this option to sort the field ascending: for example from A to Z, from lower to higher numbers, or from earlier to later dates and times. The sorting is applied immediately.

    • Sort descending - Select this option to sort the field descending: for example from Z to A, from higher to lower numbers, or from later to earlier dates and times. The sorting is applied immediately.

    • Custom sort - Select this option to sort by multiple fields in a specific order: for example, first by date, then by name. If you select this option, you can specify your custom sorting in the Custom sort dialog box. Click OK to apply the custom sorting, or Clear all to remove the custom sorting.

  4. In the Action bar , click to save the Display .

    You can also save the entire Angle and all the Displays it contains in one go. Click the caret of the Save Display button ( ) and select Save all .

    Note: If you edit and save a Display that is linked to an automation task, you will get a confirmation prompt to indicate this. If you have edited more than one Display , the confirmation dialog box will list them all. Deselect a Display if you do not want to save the changes you made. If you have sufficient privileges, click to open the corresponding automation task in the IT Management Console. Only save your changes if you are aware of their impact. Changing a Display that is linked to an automation task may cause the automation task to fail.
