Grouping was a resolution to the sorting of the Tasks, however with the latest update, this has become void. So the sorting doesn't change with order in the group but it sorts according to the start date.
Can anyone help with a work around or a solution? This is an urgent issue to be tackled.
As stated before the Gantt visual always sorts on the start date. But have you tried "tricking it" by changing the sort order (explained earlier) of the start date column using your desired sorting column? Worked for me.
Found a workaround on last version.
First you need to create a group field for which you want to sort. make sure lables given are in desired order (for ex. 00 , 01 ,02,03 etc... or AA,AB,AC,AD...etc).
After creating group with labels in desired order. drag that column in to field "Extra Information" highlighted below.
and then sort the group column as given below.
hope this will help
