 My team have asked me how they can sort their work items in the backlog.  When I create a new View I get the options to sort by creation date, estimate, planned time, priority, ranking or user defined.  I want to be able to sort by a custom attribute.  I am not sure what User Defined does.  Even if the users could just click on a column heading to sort but there are no column headings in my RTC view.

I am using RTC 3.0.1

Open Project Area in Eclipse Client > Project Configuration > Configuration Data > Planning > Plan Attributes > Attribute Mapping > Add > add the custom attribute

Open the Plan in Web Client > Edit View > Column Display > Custom attribute is now shown up > Add > Ok > Save

Now in the plan will have the custom attribute as a heading and you can click on it for sorting.

Thanks for the reply.  I have added it to the attribute mapping but I cant find Edit View on the web client.  I never use the web client, sorry that it is such a stupid question!

Edit Plan View on Web Client

This doesn't actually solve my problem.  Again I am using the eclipse client, I have the correct columns displaying but I there is no header to click to sort by column like in the web client.  

Also when I try to set up a new view I can only sort by a limited amount of items and user defined doesn't seem to do anything.
