When multiple generators are present in a structure, they are run in the following order, based on their generator type:
- Insert generators
- Extend generators
- Filter generators
- Group generators
- Sort generators
Generators of the Same Type
If there are multiple generators of the same type, they are run in the order they are listed, from top to bottom.
- This does not affect the results of Insert, Extend or Filter generators.
- This does affect the results of Group and Sort generators. With multiple Group generators, items will be grouped first by the top-most Group generator, then by the second highest, etc. The same is true with Sort - the order of the Sort generators defines which field the structure is sorted by first, second, and so on.
To change the order generators of the same-type are run, simply move them up or down in the structure.
