You have enabled the extended text feature in this report. Unfortunately the sorting cannot work on descriptions when this feature is switched on.


Please switch off the extended text feature:

  1. Open your report.
  2. Click Configure > Hide Extended Text
  3. Reopen your report.

To request a change in behavior, you can make use of the Influence Portal.
