  • This is an excellent idea and many fo my clients would liek this feature.

  • It is important not only to sort, but also to be able to group the results in a multitude of measurements. In my country, most users are used to seeing the final elements from above. In Anaplan, it turns out that on single dimension tables, users see their usual results, but if several measurements are PIVOT, the order of the total changes and cannot be changed. This makes the experience very poor.

  • I'd also add that the sort should also start working towards subsets. Say I have two line items: actuals (for all products) and forecast (for active products only). You currently can't sort both of them in the same module, because the sorting the subset leads to an error.

    Was this ever implemented?  I want to sort on two different columns.  How do we do this?
