Suggestion: Keep "sort by" in "Applications" tab after refreshing

Started by ThinkVision

Hello NetWorx developers,
I'd like to propose a minor change that might improve usability in some scenarios. This feature could be useful when user is tracking a specific application's traffic by repeatedly clicking refresh.

Steps to reproduce:
1. In Usage Report - Applications - Applications, click on "Total" column to sort by total amount of data
2. Click "Refresh"

Expected:
Rows are still sorted by total amount of data after refreshing.

Actual:
Rows are sorted by application name after refreshing. (Easy to lose eye focus after hitting refresh and sorting mechanism changes)

Thank you, that's indeed a good suggestion. We have just made NetWorx remember the last sorting order upon refresh. You can download the updated builds here.

If you want to monitor apps in real-time, I would also recommend taking a look at our new NetMaster product. It is basically a modern alternative to NetWorx designed to track network usage of apps, with additional control features. Here is what NetMaster's real-time tracking looks like:
