sort on columns - views/tasks

TDWC 9.3 :

is it possible to save the "ORDER clause" for each view/task, so that
we don't need to re-enter after each logoff/login the order direction
for the columns in our views/tasks ?

reponse IBM :

Hi Mike,

I must confirm that, as I already mentioned in my first email, the order
direction for the columns of the active task set via "Edit Sort" is only
a temporary definition and cannot be kept (saved).

That being said, I recommend that you open an RFE (Request for
Enhancement) ticket on it. RFEs get sent to our product management and
design teams for analysis.
