Feature Request - Tape Expiry Sorting

Veeam Logoby JonJR » Sun Feb 11, 2018 9:15 pm

Just a very minor feature request - When looking at B&R->Tape Infrastructure->Media Pools->Media Pool . We frequently need to sort tapes based on "Expires In", so we can identify expired or expiring soon tapes to put back in the library to be re-used.
Presumably due to numerical/text sorting, this view shows tapes with the "Expires In" value of "Expired" next to the tapes with the highest (aka most in the future) "Expired In" date. When what you really want to see is "Expired" tapes next to tapes that are just about to expire (aka tapes with the soonest "Expire In" date. This would make picking suitable tapes a lot easier as you don't need to re-sort or scroll up/down.
