Report Sorting

I've created a report, collating information from about 20 plans. I've group the tasks from each sheet together but I can appear to only be able to order them alphabetically, rather than actually order them in the same order the task would appear in the plan.

For example my 2nd task is appearing first in my report.

Anyone know how to move groups around by not using the ascending / descending options?

    Hi @Grace Donna Campbell

    I hope you're well and safe!

    It sounds like you would need to add a so-called helper column to get it sorted the way you need.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too,

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
