Maintaining original recordID when filtering data in the new Interactive Browse Tool

Now that 2019.2 is officially released I'll raise this here as I know it was raised as part of the beta testing. With the new interactive browse tool when filtering results the record numbering restarts.


For example in this window from a weekly challenge, I originally have this:

Interactive Results 1.PNG

Then when I filter on the Allocated column for records where the Allocated amount is 0, I get this:

Interactive Results 2.PNG

And as you can see the Record on the left hand side is numbered 1 - 15, so when trying to locate one of these lines to check the formula is working as expected it makes it difficult to isolate, where as if I knew that filtered record 10 was actually record 394 in the data I can then scroll to that point.  


I know a solution to this would be to add a record ID field to the data, but this is not always needed.

Hi @cgoodman,


I work on an ITGC engagement for PwC in the Manchester office, I think this would be a really useful addition!!

That would make the filtering very visually obvious (like the behaviour in Excel).   this request makes a lot of sense.
