I created a view in the DB. When I look at the view in metabase it has changed the order to alphabetical order. This seems weird?
All tables (for Metabase a view is just a table) are shown as alphabetical.
The workaround is to create a question, where you order you columns like you want, and then use that question as the base for others (aka Saved Question).
There’s a request for being able to change it:
https://github.com/metabase/metabase/issues/3720 - upvote by clicking on first post
Oh… Hmm… Any idea if it is being worked on?
@yskolnick It’s not being worked on, but it’s been given Priority 1.
What does that mean practically?
@yskolnick It means high priority and is considered in the road map together with other indicators. There’s a big difference between bugs and features, when it comes to priority.
What do you mean by “with other indicators”? And what is the difference between bugs and features in this regard?
@yskolnick Metabase is an open source project. You’re more than welcome to start working on it.
As for priority, see https://github.com/metabase/metabase/wiki/Bug-Prioritization for bugs - features are usually not prioritized unless there’s a lot of upvotes.
