By clicking on a column header, you define that you sort all entries according to the entries of this column. The sorting direction (ascending/descending) is indicated by an arrow in the column header. If you want to sort the entries using more than one column, hold Ctrl and click on each column header you want to use for the sorting. You will receive a cascaded sorting. Clicking on a column header without holding the Ctrl key discards the multiselection and sorts on this single column.
