How to sort columns in table/database?

With Nimbus Note, you can create tables and databases with different information in columns and sort columns by different criteria.

Try to sort:

💡 from smaller to larger numbers in digital columns;

💡 all completed / non-completed tasks in columns with checkboxes;

💡 percents of the work done in columns with progress.

You can enable or disable sorting through the column menu.

Digital columns can be sorted from smaller to larger numbers; in columns with checkboxes, you can show all uncompleted tasks first; and in columns with progress, you can sort tasks by percent of completion. Enable or disable the sorting in the column menu.

🤫 A little tip — clicking on the active sorting icon allows you to quickly change its type: for example, from 1-100 to 100-1.

In Nimbus Note you can sort columns by various parameters. In Nimbus Note sorting is dynamic, so if you change data in the cell of the column being sorted, the row automatically changes its place. The column used for sorting is marked with a special icon.
