Sorting records in SmartSuite is similar to working in a spreadsheet. The Sort control is available in the Report Toolbar for Grid, Card, Kanban, Calendar, Timeline and Map views.

Select any field within the Sort control and the associated sort order to dynamically rearrange records. Sort order options are based on the field type selected:

  • Text-based fields are sorted alphabetically (A to Z, Z to A)

  • Numeric & Date Fields are sorted ascending (1 to 9) or descending (9 to 1)

  • Values list fields such as Single Select are sorted by the order of values in the list (First to Last, Last to First). For example, consider a Status field with Backlog, In Process, Ready for Review and Complete values. Selecting "First to Last" will arrange all records with Backlog values first since it is the first option in the Status field value list.
