Order of the Fields in Qlik Sense

Hi All,

Is there any option to set order of the field placed in the 'Fields' section ? Please refer the below screen shot. My requirement is to place Year before Month.

The fields are sorted alphabetically. You cannot change that. Rename the fields if you think you should make life harder for your users.

Why do you want to do that?

Sorry for late reply.

Some of the business users are like to see in that way.

They want to get the fields in a order like, Year->Quarter->Month->Week->Day in the list.

If I expose a list of fields to the business users for adding analysis by their own they would like to get the fields in a order that already they accustomed to see (and also relevant to business needs).

In case of self service BI, the perspective is a bit different.
