I have added a column called Description. The other columns that i use are SharePoint predefined columns. When I want to make my column sort alphabettically i see in the list settings that you can do only a sort on the predefined columns. How can I make my list sorting on my created column?

Greetings,

Peter Kiers

It's not that the column isn't a predefined column, but it's most likely a multi line column and that you can't sort on as far as I know.

You can sort your custom column anyway, based on my knowledge there is no restriction to sort the column.

You can navigate to List setting -> all way down and select your view and under sort category you can select your custom column by using drop down as mentioned below ... i created a new custom column called New Column test , thats also display in drop down

enter image description here

And also you can sort by clicking the column name in the Display form, just like how you doing in excel
