Description dankegel 2003-06-17 15:01:11 UTC
Votes would be more useful if there was an easy way
to get a report of the top 50 issues matching certain
criteria and sorted by number of votes.  Issuezilla's
query form allows three different sort orders,
but not sorting by number of votes.  Please add this.

If you add a vote column to the output you may sort by votes by
clicking on the "votes" link in the header.

Thanks; now I can be more specific.  It's too many steps for
users to find out how to enable that column and then click on
its header.  If the HTML for the Query page added this choice 
to the "Sort By" listbox:

<option VALUE="issues.votes desc, issues.issue_id">Votes</option>

I'd be a happy camper.  By the way, the </select> is missing for
that <select> tag.

Now, I could run my own query form with that option,
since it's a client-side thing, and point people there
instead of to the official query form.  Maybe I'll do that
until Issuezilla gets its act together...

Hi Dan,
I think, the current mechanism works just fine. You may add a column
and you then may sort by it.
Adding column values to the Sort-By would be depending on specific
needs is not very generic. Should columns be mentioned which are not
displayed? I don't think, that esp. adding "Votes" is more confusing
than of help.
Finally I wouldn't expect enhancements for IssueZilla as a the
replacement Scarab is in development.
If you still feel that we should hand this request to CollabNet,
please reopen.
Greetings, Stefan

I'm happy enough since I can generate HTTP GET requests
that yield results sorted by votes.  No need to rock the boat.
