Conversely suppose that you had a dynamic group and you wanted to exclude a few people was a one-off report. Obviously I remove those excluded people and run the report. What I then want to be able to do is put everything back to the default dynamic group. The last thing I want to do is have to include back all those I have excluded.


Another solution would be to be able to create a static group from a snapshot of a dynamic group. So in the above scenario I would copy the group, exclude the various people, run the report and delete the static group. Leaving the dynamic group untouched in any change to its definitions.

A slightly quicker way to the Task Manager (in Windows) is Ctrl+Shift+Esc

I too very much want dynamic groups. I would suggest that if there are particular individuals to be added or unmarked then there should be a confirmation button that says "You have made changes to (the criteria of) this group. Would you like to add those criteria to the original criteria of the group".


Thus if I say NO then those changes will be removed if a dynamic refresh of the group is made.

But if I say YES then those changes will be included for future refresh.


Obviously you need to be able to edit the criteria and then apply that changed criteria.

I would like all descendants sorted by birth date automatically. If no birth date then put at end of the siblings sorted by name.

Could you also have a dialog box to dictate the default sort order for descendent view (such as sorting on birth date then name).
