      Sort Search Results by Most Recent Automatically

      Post

      Hello, 

      I am looking for a way to make it so that when doing a FIND, the results are displayed from the most recent record first, back to the oldest. I realize that you can just slide the bar in the nav pane, but I am looking for it to just automatically display newest, first.

      Thanks for your input!

          Do these records have an auto-entered serial number?

          If so, you can sort the records in descending order on the serial number field to put most recent at the top.

          You can automate this with a layout script trigger: OnModeExit to run a script that sorts records in this order when you leave find mode or if you script the find process itself, you can just include a sort step at the end of the script.
