Sorting variable

Discuss the jamovi platform, possible improvements, etc.

First, what a great software you got there :-) I got several users at the department preferring it over SPSS...

One question keeps popping up: Is there a way to sort a column in the spreadsheet view?

Best Regards,

Thanks for this nice interface. I am starting teaching my students Jamovi. The issue of sorting columns is still not resolved. It's a basic functionality in all software. hopefully you'll be able to add it.

Best wishes

I found this thread while browsing for the same thing. If anyone is keeping tabs on feature requests, please add my vote for any kind of sorting option. As a matter of fact, I found jamovi while looking for R GUI that will allow me to do this sorting (still searching!)

jamovi looks like an amazing effort and I appreciate it tremendously that you guys are giving it for free. Thank you so much.
