SPList View Group By Customization

  Asked By: Colin    Date: Sep 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2273

Does anyone know a way to customize the SPList View
Group By showing oder?

For example, I have a SPList named "Members"
containing a field called "Role" which takes 4 values:

Duty Staff
Strategic Partner
Participating Expert
Community Member

I can create a view "Group By" Role in either
ascending order (C, D, P, S) or decending order (S, P,
D, C).

But what if I just want to see the order exactly as
the above?

Does anyone have any suggestion?

1. Duty Staff
2. Strategic Partner
3. Participating Expert
4. Community Member

That is a clever solution and will serve the purpose
for now.

But is it possible to do without the superfluous
numbers in front of the categories? I meant involving
some development (web part, web service etc.) is OK if

Grouping is in the black box (so to speak) of a Web Part. So you'd have
to write a custom Web Part that recreates all the functionality of a
built-in Web Parts just to override group  sorting. Probably not cost
