I have a fair amount of my data that has dates. I often use dates for sorting. This is fine, unless the date attribute is not set. When I sort by date I can go from oldest to newest or vice versa. However, in my use case scenario never usually means older than the oldest date set. But,
never never sorts that way. It always sorts
Is there a way to change this behaviour?
Let me give an example.
I have a list of people that I need to call regularly. I can sort this list by my
DateCalled attribute and set it so that those who were called less recently appear at the top of that list. There are also people that I have not yet even called. They have no
DateCalled attribute set and should ideally be right at the top of the list, but sort does not allow that. It seems that
never is listed by the most recently contacted. TBX sorts like the below:
Call List - Fred [60 days ago] - Jane [45 days ago] - Harold [30 days ago] - Jill [never]
Why isn’t Jill at the top and more importantly can I put her there somehow?
For the time being those not yet called get an arbitrary old date set in the attribute.
