Is there a way to sort Tasks in list view by the parent name ("Related To" column)?

Is there any way in the Tasks list view to make the list sortable by the “Related to” column?

Interesting, but not possible without custom code.
Usually sorting works on database columns, Parent name is column which pulls data based upon parent id.

Until you don’t store parent name somewhere in the database and update them using “Before Save” hooks.


Thanks, ashish. I wonder if it might not be a useful improvement for v8 to handle the column sorting in the browser with javascript – that way it wouldn’t require a sql query and you could sort any column. Paging/records per page could still be a query (so you’re not loading the entire list every time you open the list view).
