[TFUI] Configure default sorting in Grid Views

Currently in a Grid View, the object instances are sorted by default by the Name field in an ascending order. In an embedded Grid, the default sorting can be configured to meet ones needs. This is not possible in a Grid View. Users have to apply their sorting every time manually. It would be quite a benefit for the usability if the default sorting in a Grid View could be configured same way as in an embedded grid.

Use Cases:

  • sorting by Due Date
  • sorting by Last Creation Date
  • sorting by a reference string for a logical grouping of data
