ok...i'm back where i started. this is a continuation of a previous thread...hoping i'll get some additional support:If i use a standard view for messages or tasks, and i sort it or group it, it will retain those settings until i reset it in the custom view box.
outlook profile keeps corrupting even after creating new profile
wheni build a custom view, (and uncheck the group by arrangement box), if i make any sort of "on-the-fly" change like sort or group, the custom view will maintain the new change.
i've tried several different options and arrangements, closed and restarted, rebooted, .... still happens.
Do I have an incorrect perception of views? Seems to me that the "simple list" view, especially as it is a system view, should remain consistent all the time...if you re-sort, it should return to its official set-up next time you select that view.
what is the point of having standard or custom views if they are not "permanent?" or why have columns that can sort, if you can't put them back the way they were?
I'm going to post this as a new post, hoping i'll get some additional suggestions.
