    sort ascending / sort descending / no sort .... cant be too difficult surely? That triangle is so annoying when you just want to show basic info

    Way to respond to your consumers.....when they call you out on something that should have been included in release number 1

    Very standard feature that we need desperately. All the workarounds involving invisible columns and DAX code are clumsy and difficult to maintain.

    Definately need this disabled as we are trying to plot information in a very specific order... it will cause issues in the particular scenario I'm developing

    Sometimes the sort feature is just not needed. It would be good to turn it off on those occasions. Just a simple slide control in formatting would do it.....it does everything else but make coffee!

    Come on, why is this functionality missing? It is the most basic function of any tool.

    Well - it works fine in Excel - maybe we'll stick to that instead of this pseudo Excel.

    Need this as well to ensure certain tables remain in the order set.

    This would be very helpful as there are some items that we always want to show up in a specific order,
