Removing column in overview makes sort wrong



this is a minor thing, but when you add a column to show in e.g. a test run, and then remove this column, then the drop down loses its sorting

In this case I have added “Elapsed All” and immediately removed it afterwards.

When closing the dialog and reopening it, makes the sorting correct again.


Hi Andreas,

Thanks for your posting. Yes, this is the expected behavior and TestRail doesn’t re-sort the list again after removing a column (it just adds it to the end of the list). One side effect of this is that this also makes it easy to find previously removed columns.



if its expected behaviour then its ok :slight_smile:


You are welcome :slight_smile:
