Sort Rows with criteria

It would be great if you could use the Sort Row function with a criteria option also.

For Example:

If I had a range of open and closed requests that have different due dates.

Sort rows by "Due Date" with due soonest showing at the top but only the rows where the closed box has not been ticked, the rows that are "closed" would show at the end of all the "open" rows.

    As you can see, there's a small note that says that Dropdown Lists will sort in the list order that you have identified in the column's properties (double click the column). So in my case, I sorted it like above for a result of:

    Does this help?
