Sorting Order Issue

Hi All,

 

I want to sort the New category in the Matrix at below Pic 1 based on the order in the Pic 2 below. When I choose the sort by Category, it only sort by aphabetical order of the New Category instead of the order under Index column.

 

Can you please advise how I can sort the New category to follow the order shown in the Pic 2?

Hi @kelvin-lkh ,

 

According to your description, to sort the index columns in the matrix you need to add the index field to the matrix visual.
