How can we improve the newest version of Windward Studios Products?

Custom OrderBy criteria.

The capability to define custom OrderBy rules. We have properties we would like to order by, and these properties return string values that we would like to order by in a non-alphabetical fashion.

Example orderby: (Critical, High, Medium, Low, Info)

Workaround right now is to change the return type of the property to int and keep track of a mapping between the int and the original string.

    Hi Nick,

    My name is Adam Jackson and I'm a Product Manager with Windward. Thanks for submitting an idea!

    Unfortunately Datasources don't support custom OrderBy criteria, so we can't support it with our software. Fortunately though you can do this yourself by adding any number of OrderBy columns to the database itself and then using those columns in conjunction with our software to order and pull the exact data that you need.

    Feel free to reach out to our Support team if you have any questions about this!

    -Adam
