How can I sort by Retention Change, not by the day the retention change takes place?

In our Company Product Project, we have a label "Retention". 

The values of this label are "days" and "impact". Examples of entries would be 

"day 7 - 5%" (meaning: the number of people that churn on day 7 will decrease by 5%)

"day 1 - 2%" (meaning: the number of people that churn on day 1 will decrease by 2%)

to give you a better feeling, I attach screenshots.

values entered

Retention Change, set-1.jpg


Both values can be edited separately, which is great, but when i sort by "Retention", it always sorts by the day of the effect, not by the decrease. Sorting by the increase would be much more helpful.

I hope you understand and can help me solve my problem. If not, please ask.

Thank you!

Hi Hannes

This is not possible since the sorting will always be done on the parent value.

However it is possible to do a specific search on the child value with JQL
for example: "Retention change" in ("+ 10-15%")

Hope this helps
