Unable to sort RTC query by custom attribute if type contributor

Shirley Jhirad (514251) | asked Jun 08 '14, 6:35 a.m.

I have several customized attributes that are of type "Contributor" .

Once i create queries and wish to Sort by these attributes, i'm unable to see them in the 'sort order' section inside the 'Column Display'.

I do see other customized attributes which are not of type Contributor.

Can someone advise?

Thanks in advance,

I don't think there is a general purpose sort for contributor type..

I think Owner/creator sort is special code.

Sam is right that sort on custom contributor type of attributes are not supported.
There are a couple of RFE workitems available and the below one has got most attention so far:

The latest one from a formal PMR is as below and Jun 12, 2014 is the SLA to get a first answer:
you may want to pay attention to this latest one first and see in general how the dev team will triage and suggest in their first reply.
