That doesn’t imply your task is wrong, just that it is a n open-known one, Which is probably why there wasn’t a description.
But, after a brief misunderstanding as to what was needed (as noted the brief was vague), within a very short time, your fellow users here had an answer which doesn’t strike me as hard now it’s been described. It answer involves setting two pop-ups in the Sort Inspector but if confused by the explanation already posted, please open a new thread where we can help walk you through the detail.
With a toolbox type app it is an easy mis-presumption that others are doing the same thing and in the same way. For long term forum readers, it is the case that few solutions are used exactly the same by numbers of users. Indeed, when someone make a TBX with a ‘finished’ workflow, the normal first question is someone wanting to change it.
