I'm having a hard time sorting the tasks. Once we import from P6 it retains the structure, But once we sort by any of the columns I can never get back to the original structure as in P6. can some one explain me the logic or rules behind the sorting algorithm in Synchro PRO. Thanks!
Here is the logic behind sorting in Synchro:
First, you have to be aware that there are three Gantt modes: WBS, Activity Codes, and List
For example, if you'd like to sort by pure alphabetical order and disregarding the WBS structure, you'd have to switch to list mode.
If you're in WBS mode, once you import form P6 it retains the structure, then once you sort by any of the columns, you can get back to the original structure by removing the sort on that/these column(s).
To do that, simply click on the small triangle on the edge of the column and then choose "No Sorting" (see image below)
Tip: You will know that a column has a sorting applied to it when you see a small arrow next to the triangle pointing up or down.
