|Target Version||5.1||Fixed in Version||5.1|
|Summary||0016714: Grid (by Album) Sorting is Limited|
|Description||Grid (by Album) sorting is more limited than MM4 which had more Columns to sort on and allowed ascending and descending sorts.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in build||2800|
||Also the ability to reverse sort in grids isn't possible: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=482617#p482617|
Sorting has been implemented in Grid views via the Views configurator. However, this is kind of hidden and doesn't address the need for multiple sorts or changing the sort order. So the simplest approach to dealing with this would be to:
a) Display sort headers at the top of Grid (by album) views for each of the visible album attributes. afaik, this isn't required for any other Grid view.
b) We should probably also display the Album date in this view (if sort by Year feature is added)
Note: users have asked to sort by other attributes. We could theoretically allow the user to configure sort headers, but I don't think it makes sense since other attributes aren't _album_ attributes. e.g. Sort by 'Date added' or 'Artist' wouldn't make sense since tracks from a given album may not have been added all at once, and tracks from an album may have different artists, so in both cases the Album would have to be represented twice (and without the Sort attribute shown since it isn't album specific).
Sorting moved to grid view header, enabled both directions, build 2800. Possible sorting by rating not added yet, it would be very time-consuming now, to be done later with some temporary saving of precomputed album ratings (we currently compute it only for displayed albums, to save CPU load).
There was also a request for "Original date" : https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=103052
(marked as fixed in 2800 so that the sorting in header implementation gets tested).
