    Hi Elliott, 

     

    The plugin looks great, very useful in many cases that we needed to find ad-hoc solution for our clients 

     

    With that in mind, I'm wondering whether to replace the current workaround/hacks that we've done to achieve some of the functionality described in this widget to some of my clients.

     

    Do you consider this one as a stable plugin that will be maintained in the future alongside new versions of Sisense? 

     

    Thanks,
    Ravid

    Hi Ravid,

    Thank you for the feedback! As of right now, the plugin is considered an un-supported Sisense plugin. I did go through a decent amount of testing, and the plugin does seem very stable. For the time being, I'm going to be personally supporting this one, so if you find any issues, please let me know so I can fix them. If this plugin gets a lot of traction, it is possible that it can become an officially supported one. 

    So overall, I recommend that you use the plugin at your own risk as it is "unsupported".

    Hi Ravid,

    the plugin looks great however, I think this should not be a plugin but a standard functionality built into the product .

    Thanks,

    Thanks Elliott -- so excited to try this one out. A highly-requested functionality.

    I'm sure I've barely scratched the surface, but just the ease of sorting grouped columns is ... well, I won't say life-changing, but it's at least really nice :)

    Hi Elliott.

    One little issue : when "none" is selected I get this :


    While reverse gives this :

    Side note, I find "none" to be misleading/imprecise... Maybe consider Default or Asc?

    Also, in the custom ordering of my break by, when I move a category it disappears. Haven't really been able to get the results I was aiming for in my tests, but you definitely are on the right track with this option.

    I will definitely keep an eye on this. Keep up the good work.

    Hey Carl,

    Are you using Edge as your browser? V2.0.0 is extremely new, so I haven't had the time yet to debug across all browsers for the custom sort. Have you tried chrome/firefox?

    Was testing in IE11 (don't judge me, default browser at work :P)

    The custom reordering works well in chrome, but "none" still yields the same result.

    Hey Carl,

     

    There currently is a minor bug in the product that can be causing your issue. Can you add a screenshot of the behavior you are experiencing? Also have you tried going to the dashboard and doing a page refresh (same results?).

     

    Thanks for the feedback!

    The issue in IE or the one with "none"?

    The one with the None. I was already aware of the IE11 + Edge issues.

    Thanks!

    Reverse gives this :

    None gives this :

    I would expect none to give this (which is what I get with your plugin disabled) :

    And yes I tried refreshes, but same result.

    Hey Carl,

    So I tested this out and I can't quite replicate. I'm actually a bit surprised that None gives different results than when the plugin is disabled. Are you testing in IE11 or a different browser?

    As a note, I do know that there is a minor bug in the product that can cause None and Reverse to show up incorrectly, but that is because the data is already coming back non-alphabetically sometimes.

    Again, very much appreciate the feedback!

    Hey Carl,

    Do you have a widget script on that widget?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Elliot,

    Great plugin!

    • Can we customize the location of the "Total"? it is a bit too close to the top.
    • Can we customize it to show % and values in the breakdown parts? 

    Thanks,

    V2.0.2 just dropped!

    Fixed Custom Category Sorting on date fields. Fixed the category reset button, to always be sorted correctly. Updated popup styling.

    Enjoy =D

    Hey Tamir,

    1) How would you like the total to be displayed? I can probably add a configuration to give more space at the top if you think that is needed?

    2) Can you elaborate on this a bit more? Maybe a quick sketch of what you want?

    Thanks,

    Hey Elliott,

    would it be possible to modify the pop up window so it matches other popups (sharing, etc. ) I mean buttons, header..

    Thanks :)

    Hi,

    Can you provide a screenshot of another popup as an example? Also there isn't any functionality that I know of in Sisense that has the drag and drop functionality in the popup, so I just created my own styling on those.

    Hi Elliott,

     

    Yes sure, this looks much cleaner, generally standard Sisense popup window would look better and more consistent J also, as you can see, there is a little drag and drop, not sure if you can utilize that, maybe some styling of the fields to follow the same idea? Btw. Don’t look at the colours, we modified them slightly.

    Thanks,

    Does this plugin work for 7.1? I renamed the folder and added it to the plugin folder but the functionality does not appear for either a Column or Bar chart. I've hit Apply and Refreshed the page but still don't see anything.

     

    Thanks!

    Thank you everyone for the feedback, I'll take a look through to see what makes sense to change.

     

    Hey Jessica, 

    Yes this works in 7.1.  Do you see the plugin on the plugin page under admin? Make sure the plugin is in that list and on. Also what browser are you on?

    Best,

    V2.1.0 just dropped!

    Rebuilt the custom sorting popup to have a cleaner and more consistent styling. Also added 3 buttons in the popup: Save Config, Cancel, Reset Config.

    Enjoy =D

    Hi Elliott,

     

    Running into a bug on this one -- on 7.1.3, opening the widget sidebar pops up a blank modal. See attached
