Possible to reorder columns in Portfolio (specifically, Reports)?

I'm trying to reorder the column display (header row) of the Portfolio Scope Report. I've tried dragging, holding to enable dragging, checking configurations, etc. and nothing.

Is there any way to do this??


Thank you in advance

Hi Samee, 

It's currently not possible to re-order the column display of the scope table.

However, you can use the scope table configuration menu to manage the columns you would like to see and the ones you would like to hide from view, if you are trying to make the report a bit easier to visually consume. 

You can also download the scope table report as a csv file by choosing 'Export' and manipulate the data as necessary. 

May I ask what the problem is you are trying to solve by re-ordering the columns?


Hi Bree,

Thanks for the response.

Yes, I've utilized the config menu to show/hide the necessary columns, but it is still preferential to reorder the columns, as applicable to the user. Particularly in this case, a director has senior stakeholder meetings and wishes to show data in a certain 'flow'.

I'm currently exporting the report, as a workaround, but am encountering the two below issues:

  1. This is a manual export and will not remain current/live, as the report does. This is an issue when there is high-visibility on this Portfolio plan
    1. I've downloaded and exported to Confluence, utilizing a macro to display
  2. There are useful fields in the export that are not available in the report view (via config menu)
    1. The Report view should have the same options available to display as the export


Thank you

Hi Samee, 

Thanks for your response and feedback. Regarding your point about the fields that are useful to you but are not currently visible via the config menu, which are these?



I agree Samee, we should be able to order these however we want to be useful.  We have a custom field called "initiative owner" that I want to display next to the title for example.

Joining this request, I wan to reorder the columns so i will decide what is important to me to see first and what columns will be visible after a short scroll.
I was surprised the plugin doesn't supports that already.
