CSM Session Overview List - Sort by Name

Suggestion when discussing CSM with Jack Henry. Back with TPC-R we were used to having the Session List displayed first by Status, and then sorted by Session name. So, the active sessions are at the top, and the remaining sessions are sorted by name. today, there is not the second sort by name

    To make sure we understand this correctly, the CSM overview panel does allow you to click on the Session Name column header and it will sort by the session name. But that's not the desire here. What you're looking for is a secondary sort so that it still sorts first on the session status but second on the session name. If TPC-R used to do that we might have lost it when TPCR switch to the new table format allowing column resizing etc. We can look into whether the secondary sort is possible.
