I would love to be able to star or pin records, causing them to take the #1 place in a table, regardless of whether or not sorting is active. Often times I will sort things alphabetically for ease-of-access in finding desired records, though there may be a handful of records I want easier access to without creating a separate view for them. So being able to star or pin records that stay at the top (in the order in which they were pinned) no matter what sorting occurs, would be awesome.
That would be cool. Your best bet for now would be to sort by 2 different criteria… your star field, then your next field.
