Wyn Enterprise: Sort

Sorting helps visualize dashboards by arranging the data in some meaningful order. Users can apply sort on the dimension values of a scenario in ascending or descending order. For example, you may want to sort the products by sales revenue to find the top-selling products.

Sorting Products in Chart Scenario

Use the Sort dialog to specify the sort conditions. The available options in the Sort dialog are described as follows:

Options Description
Target Value Refers to the value on which you want to apply the sort. Note that you can apply sort only to the bound dimensions
Items Sorts the target field alphabetically.
Sort Order - Specify the sort order as Ascending or Descending.
Value Sorts the target field by measure values. Specify the Sort Order and Sort By.
Sort By - Select the measure from the list. Note that the list contains only the bound measures.
Field Sorts the target field by data attributes. Specify the Sort Order and Sort By.
