Add a multiple columns sort featue
If it is possible please provide the multiple columns sort . For example I want to sort the table visualization based on Priority and severity
Hey y’all. Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve thought some about multi-column sort, but don’t have a timeline currently to share. Keep voting so you’ll get notified once we start working on it.
There are other registered ideas that are almost the same as this one. This uncontrolled idea submitting option is not efficient. I think this is a really important feature but because of the inefficient registration does not get the votes it deserves (now its fragmented).
Not my text but I agree fully:
I think that Microsoft must spend more time on these basic, fundamentals of reporting / dashboarding. I worry that too often they spend more time chasing cool, "glitzy" functionality, at the expense of the core functionality that other products have
Compound sorting seems like a very basic reporting feature. I would hope it would be added ASAP.
Totally agree. The 'solution' of creating a calculated column and sorting by that (similar with joining using multiple columns) is not really good enough.
I have several reports created where it would be nice to sort on multiple columns. For example (1) number of orders decreasing year and month or (2) seqenced by weeks the number of tickets for each department in decreasing volume.
Part of this want is that the multi column sort is very flexible in MS Excel

I agree with other comment, at least excel features should be part of Power BI.

There are many very BASIC features that are not supported by Power BI. This is one of them. I don't think we should even have to vote on something this simple and straightforward - it's a feature of Excel.

Yes please, do add. Looking at migrating functionality from COGNOS impromptu to Power BI Desktop and this is important
Need to order by store, date. Very much needed feature.
This feature is very much required
Would be really Nice. I need to sort by Company and Year
