CRM 2011: Not able to sort column from a different entity RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a view in Opportunities and a column in there from my contacts. Why are we not able to sort by this? Is there a way that we can sort by this?

  • Unfortunately this is a limitation of the grid UI. I've not tried this, but it might be possible to modify the fetchxml of the savedquery entity that represents the view. The change you need is to put an <order> element within the link-entity.

    It is supported to change the fetchxml attribute of a savedquery via the Crm SDK, though not directly via SQL
