Sort Order, Groups and Custom Reports

14 June 2018 - 02:20 PM

I just came across a difference in sort order between a Group in the sidebar and a sorted custom report. In the Group sidebar they were sorted by last name, given with individuals with no middle given name appearing before those with a middle given name.


In a custom report based upon the group and sorted by surname and then given name, the individuals with middle given names  sorted before those without.


Either there are two sort functions being used or a collation sequence is different between the two sorts.




New Fields for Custom Reports Sorting

14 June 2018 - 02:07 PM

New fields for selection in sorting for custom reports is needed. At the present time only surname and given name is available and surname married is needed to group individuals together that are spouses in various cases. An example of the need for surname married is when generating a report of people buried in a given cemetery. Generally spouses are buried together and listing them together would reduce the amount of searching thru the report to find them. While you are implementing this also add surname birth or married to be able to group people together in custom reports.
