Configure sorting order in a view

This topic applies to Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (on-premises). For the Power Apps version of this topic, see: Sort records in a model-driven app view

  1. When you create or edit the view, select Configure Sorting.

  2. In the Configure Sort Order dialog box, in the Sort By list, select the column you want to sort, then select Ascending Order or Descending Order.

  3. Select OK to close the Configure Sort Order dialog box.


    Grids in Unified Interface apps take the list of displayed columns from the underlying FetchXML of the view. If the FetchXML that is returned from the server does not have a column, then that column is not displayed. This is in contrast to the classic web application, where if a column is not present in FetchXML but is in LayoutXML, such a column is automatically added to the list of displayed columns. Unified Interface apps use OData directly with FetchXML to retrieve data from the server.
