Can Service Desk report columns be moved without having to re-create the report from scratch?

Have created reports in which the order of columns needs to be different. Seems I have to delete a series and then recreate them in the order desired - big time-waster.

where is this report being created specifically. I know that in Confluence if you insert a filtered list then if you want to change the order or add a field 'not at the end' then you do have to remove all and re-add in desired order. Not sure if that is what you are referring to here.

Thanks for responding.

I am creating reports in Service Desk using the "Add a Series" button, which creates the columns within the report. When we want to move a column, we have delete them and recreate them in the new order. Wishing they could be dragged and dropped into the new order.

Correct, there is no reordering of the data columns w/in JSD Reports. I primarily use JSD Reports for the graphs and only occasionally use for diving into the details so the order hasn't been a big deal. That said it would be nice. There may be a suggestion ticket already open on this so you might look and vote for it.
