What are Dynamic Attributes?
Dynamic Attributes are the successor to those pesky Reference IDs. They will allow users to create new custom settings at the Page and Element level and do it in a much more organized and scalable fashion. As an example, we developed a way to allow the Time or Date-Time element to be shown in either a 12 or 24-hour time format.
What does the Sort Attribute do?
The Sort Dynamic Attribute will allow users to choose the order in which columns are displayed.
PLEASE NOTE: This Dynamic Element Attribute is available with iForm for iOS 8.36 and iForm for Android 8.11.

STEP 2. Under the Element Properties section, click the Dynamic Attributes drop-down.
STEP 3. Select Sort from the drop-down choices.

STEP 6. Save your form.
