Pages: Important Sort and Filter Options


Recommended Posts

Hi, really enjoying Pages however have hit a really significant limitation of the software.  

Default Sorting
Could you please consider moving the option beyond just the Database settings in to the Category settings.  
In our situation for example it's necessary to sort the display of some categories differently from others.

Database Filters
Could you please consider just like being able to choose which form fields apply to a category, being able to choose which filter fields apply to a category.
In our situation for example it's necessary to show different filter options per category.

To further describe what we're attempting to achieve, we have a number of entries in to a database however each category varies slightly. Overall producing about 12 categories for the database, with 2 unique fields for each category.  Presently the only way to achieve our desired sorting and filtering options is to create 12 different databases, and create a single category in each. This then has ramifications for how the data is displayed together as it's now disjointed over multiple databases.  In our situation for example, considering that 90% of the entry data is the same this small amount of flexibility per category would reduce 12 individual databases to 1.
