Grouping: add a fourth grouping to a list

You can have 4 groupings in a matrix report. For more information about matrix reports, see Create a matrix report.

You can only have 3 groupings in a standard report through the standard interface. To add a 4th grouping in a standard report, you must use text mode.


For example, you might have a task report which is grouped by Project Name, Progress Status and Planned Completion Date, but you also want to group the report by Assigned To Name.
