Sorting work item lists


Dave Draeger (4172) | asked Aug 30 '07, 11:12 a.m.
I'm having problems getting the work items to be persistently sorted (first
by Priority and then by Severity). I can do this by clicking a few times on
the appropriate columns "P" / "S" after running a work item query, but I
don't want to have to keep doing this everytime I run a query. Does anyone
know how to persist this "preference"?

A few background notes:
1. This happens on both windows / linux TC clients.
2. I tried creating a new "sort view" (the little AZ icon on the work items
view) with my preferences, but that doesn't seem to work.
3. Being able to create a new query and define the sort order for the
results would be great too, but I didn't see this option either for building
up a work item query.

Any insight would be appreciated.

You could overwrite the 'Default' view with your preferred settings. All
queries will then be shown using this view.

3. Being able to create a new query and define the sort order for the
results would be great too, but I didn't see this option either for building
up a work item query.

This is planned work and will be part of the new query editor. Once the
columns and associated sort order can be explicitly defined for each
query, the views support may be dropped in favor of simpler
configurability of the view's columns and sort order.

Yes, this seems to work. I didn't want to change the default view (since I
always like to be able to get back to the "out-of-box" setup when needed)
but this does seem to work for what I wanted.

Good to hear, I look forward to this.
