Sub sorts

Postby Skylamar » Wed Jun 21, 2017 11:51 pm

Hi. I just bought Bookpedia tonight. I had been using Delicious Library 2, though I don't use it that often.

I've just decided to reorganize all my physical books. I'm planning to organize them by genre and then by author's name within each genre -- which brings me to my feature request:

I would love to be able to do sub-sorts in Bookpedia. So for instance, as I mentioned above, sort my books by Genre and then by Author but keep Genre as the master sort and have Author be a secondary sort.

If that's already possible, please let me know.

Currently it seems that Bookpedia doesn't do sub sorts, so when I sort by Genre and then by Author, my books are only sorted by Author.

But, for my purposes of rearranging my physical books, Bookpedia would help me a lot with a sub sort. I could reference my Bookpedia database when organizing my physical books.

Thanks!

You can subsort your columns up to 6 columns deep. Check out this post or this part of the Help for more details.

Great, thanks!

One related question: the Author sort seems to sort authors by first name. Is there a way to sort them by last name? Ideally, I want them sorted by last name.

Thanks!

Thanks again! Sorry I didn’t read everything before. Bookpedia really is great. I am going to trash Delicious Library now.
