The values held within a Summary screen can be sorted to present the records in a particular order, alphabetically, numerically and date wise.  


This will allow you, for example, to sort by 'Status', when first pressed the records will be presented as:


  • Active
  • Draft
  • Due
  • Expired
  • Future


If pressed again they will be presented as:


  • Future
  • Expired
  • Due
  • Draft
  • Active


You can only sort by one column at a time.  When you have selected a sorting option, the summary screen will stay in that order unless you select another column to sort by.


There are arrows presented on the header of each column when the column header is pressed, indicating the sorting option.  These arrows will remain displayed until an alternative sort is selected.

The records will sort depending or the values held within the column that you are sorting by. The first press will sort the data ascending, the second press will sort descending.
