2505953 - Time Sheet's Column's Sequence Using Drag and Drop

Symptom

Your requirement is to reorder the sequence of columns on the Time sheet. After performing reorder by drag and drop, the sequence of columns is not reordered.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Home work center
  2. Go to Self-Services view
  3. Select Self-Services Overview
  4. Under the section Time, select Edit Time Sheet
  5. In the Time Entries section, select the View Worklist from the drop-down menu
  6. Move any of the columns Task, Activity, Monday, Tuesday and so on between one another by drag and drop
  7. Select Save and Close
  8. Select Edit Time Sheet
  9. The positions of the columns are not as the same as it was saved

Cause

The drag and drop of columns to maintain the order is not working completely. This is because there are hidden columns in list.

For example, on the Time Sheet, if you drop the column Wednesday next to the column Activity, then you will see the column Wednesday in between columns Task and Activity, since one position taken by hidden column.

Resolution

There are 2 options to rearrange the columns:

  1. Drag and drop
