Sort the entire client list in SEPM, not just the visible page

When you click on a column header in a managed client list in SEPM to sort it, only the current list is sorted.   This defeats the whole purpose of sorting the list and is inconsistent with other applications that sort table entries when a column header is clicked.

Instead, the entire client list should be sorted, not just the current page.  There's nothing wrong with re-doing the query, and the SQL syntax I can think of for doing the query is simpler than the query you'd need to do to select the current page, then sort it.

Sure, to avoid the problem, you can change the number of clients visible on one page.    But wouldn't it be better if the problem was solved instead?

BTW There's a related thread:

I hate the way it is......I find it so difficult to find things because it isn't sorted by the whole list of users instead of just that page.
