# Why and when it's been moved
This guide has been moved to the Row Sorting page in May 2021. This is due to a naming error when we first named this plugin. We compare the values in rows and sort them accordingly. Columns have nothing to do with it.
At some point in the future, we may introduce a column sorting feature that would change the order of columns based on the values in the selected row.
