Sorting Student Names by Secondary Identifier (i.e. Section)

It would be great if we could expand on the sorting capabilities of the student column by also allowing sorting by section or other secondary identification. Filtering by section continues to be nice, but sometimes our instructors want to see all the sections but not mixed together.

We would love this as well.   On a multi campus it really assists things

This would be very useful for us too.

Thanks Buddy!  We would also like to see sorting on secondary identifier, AND I have just recently received two requests from instructors at our campus who wanted to view the whole gradebook sorted first by section and then by name (or other identifier).  That flexibility would be greatly appreciated.
