Please could you add the following guidline :
All lists must be sorted using one or more visible attributes.
I take note what you write about product list, we could sort by Product
Name. About category, when an object has Categories, there is always a
group by Category. You can use it to sort easily by category. You can
also give you idea to sort other list views
this to avoid to get lists sorted by inernal id as can be seen here
A bad example is products list ( a central table )
this list must be sorted either by
* product name or
* code or
* Category + product name (my preference)
I think it is better to keep a visible list, if there are attributes
used by default to sort data, user can expect to see directly data he
needs (e.g. Opportunities). If the sorted list isn't suitable for user,
he can use other filter.
OpenERP is waisting resources (server/network/user time) if users have to
click column headers to get userfriendly results after displaying "garbage"
I also suggested already multiple times to have an option to not display any
results for long list and ask users to enter search criteria first.
just think of slow and/or costly (mobile)line
If a user uses always same parameters, he can save it. but list view is
often used to search a particular document in a given time. It could be
less user friendly if the system remembers last sort.
it would be good to to allow to store search parameters similar to filters (as
already partly available in Koo - remembers last sort)
