Ability to Drag/Reorder Column Rules

I'd love the ability to drag/reorder column rules in a report, similar to how you can reorder custom forms on an object.

Since the order of column rules is important to making them work when there is more than 1 rule in a column, like below example, often I have to play with them to order them the specific way I need. I currently have to trash the rules and create them again in a new order, I can't just drag them to reorder. It would be really helpful to just be able to easily reorder them without having to recreate them!

Hi @Madalyn_Destafney and @RandyRoberts,

 

In cases where you've already created several such advanced formatting column rules but (arg) now realize you need to insert one, technically, you can flip to text mode, copy the contents to a text editor, use search and replace to "make room" (e.g. column:4 > column:5, column:3 > column:4), duplicate a placeholder (e.g. copy all column:2 rows then rename those copies to column:3), paste the results back into Workfront, switch to graphical mode, and and then adjust the placeholder (column:3) with the new rule.

 

Hmmm...now that I type that all out, maybe an up/down arrow would be easier...

 

Regards,

Doug

@Doug_Den_Hoed__AtAppStore haha see what I mean? There are ways around recreating them but every option is still more inefficient than simply having the ability to drag/drop to reorder, or an up/down arrow like you said. Would save so much time and seems like easy functionality to implement, given that they already have it in place with reordering custom forms on a project.

This would be great for Column Rules, I'd also like to be able to drag/reorder Groupings and Prompts. To re-order those it's also currently a case of delete/re-add
