  2. Display the following columns in the portlet layout:
    • Project Name
    • Project ID
    • Manager
    • Start
    • Finish
  3. Set the sorting to ascending based on "Project Name"
  4. Navigate to Home -> General. Personalize the "Overview: General" tab -> Display the portlet created in step 1. Save and Return
  5. Configure the portlet (From the Home side). Change the sort column to "Manager". Save and Return
  6. Configure the portlet again -> Click on "General" tab -> Click on "Restore Defaults"
  7. Notice the column by which sorting is done
  8. Refresh the page. Notice the column by which sorting is done
