Report rules do not retain filter criteria and sort orders



Report rules do not retain filter criteria and sort orders under two circumstances :

1. A repeat grid does not retain the previous sort order and filter selection when included in a tab with automatic refresh enabled. Refresh->List item cannot be used here since the entire tab is configured to refresh and user does not want an explicit link / button to refresh the worklist.

2. A repeat grid cannot be configured to retain the sort or filter criteria across sessions (Log off / Log in)
