Enhance Data Table with interactive features of List (i.e. sort by column)

We would like to use the new data table, that is available since 11.1.6 in our reports.

But we are missing the interactive features, that are available for the Lists in reports.

Especially the function to sort by any column is often used and needed.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? All Cognos users who use list reports today.
How should it work?

1) Enhance data tables with interactive functions that are available for lists.

2) Much better usabilty for data tables.

3) Currently no workaround available.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Data Tables are a very useful feature, but only make sense if htey have more interactive features.
