Sorting promoted views by date

For a while now it has been impossible to sort promoted views by a date column, or export the date information to Excel. I decided to have a look at the problem earlier and I think I have tracked the issue down to a line in one of the JavaScript files. It appears that you can fix the issue by making the following change:

  1. Edit the file: C:\inetpub\CiresonPortal\Scripts\grids\structure\sourceFields\controller.js
  2. Replace line 54 with this:
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; //var newColumn = col;<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; var newColumn = $.extend({}, col);
Promoted views should load and behave correctly, though you may have to click Reset View to clear the saved state of the grid.

    Hi John,

    Is there any plans to include this fix in future updates?

    I've noticed that this simple fix is not included in the 8.4.3 update rolled out on 04/02/2018.  Also, after updating, we have to manually go in and fix it again (the update overwrites the file).
