When running an Action Detail Report and selecting to sort the report by Query Order, the report still appears in order by Action Date.
This is resolved in January-March 2019 and applied to databases in Blackbaud Hosting Services. If your database is installed locally, download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable.
In previous versions:
If the report needs to be sorted by Constituent Name, go to the Format tab of the report and select Sort/Break. Uncheck the Sort by query order. Select Name/ID from the Available fields and arrow it over to the right side.
Note that not all fields are available for Sort.
