Hello everyone,


I'm stuck on this basic problem for SugarCRM 7.X : How to change the default sort order of a Dashlet displayed on the Contact record view?

This problem seems very basic but I cannot find a way to solve it, maybe I'm missing a simple thing, but if a hero could help me find a way to solve it...


Here is what I tried without expected behaviour :

1. Create a custom component to work on the collection to apply the custom sort :

- custom-dashablelist component with proper reference in the dashboard table


[{"width":12,"context":{"module":"CustomModule","link":null},"view":"label":"CustomModule","type":"custom-dashablelist","module":"CustomModule", "last_state":{"id":"custom-dashable-list"},"intelligent":"1","limit":5,"filter_id":"all_records","display_columns":["name","related_name","custom_date"],"linked_fields":["related_module"],"skipFetch":true,"componentType":"view","link":null}}],


1.a. Trying to sort the result collection from custom-dashablelist.js file :

this.collection.comparator = "custom_date";


1.b. Trying to override list.js too :

collection.orderBy.field = "custom_date";

collection.orderBy.direction = 'desc';

2. Trying to override current order in Query with a before_fetch_query logic hook, but I cannot know that the query is from my specific Dashlet...
