Sorting an Alarm Status Table by State is less useful in Perspective than in Vision.
In Vision, Sort Order property options that include State will descend as Active Unacked, Active Acked, Cleared Unacked, Cleared Acked. This is ideal for me - new active alarms are presented first, while cleared alarms are less of a concern (because they are cleared) and are presented at the bottom.
In Perspective, you can choose whether state sorting is ascending or descending, but neither has the same form as Vision. Ascending sorts as Cleared Unacked, Cleared Acked, Active Unacked, Active Acked. Naturally, descending sorts the reverse - Active Acked, Active Unacked, Cleared Acked, Cleared Unacked’.
It would be great to be able to match the sort order of Vision, as neither sort option in Perspective makes sense to me. I want (need, even) the Active Unacked alarms to come first. This is currently impossible short of hiding all Cleared alarms or hiding Active Acked, neither of which I’m keen to do.
