How to have more than one sort attribute in a default sort in a GI

I have a GI that shows my sales order list that I would like to be able sort by more than one field. When I put more than one attribute into the sort settings of the GI it seems to only work on the top one - is there a way to sort by the top one, then within the top one, sort by the second one? 

For further explanation, we powdercoat our orders and we have two user defined Fields in the sales order - colour, and priority. It would be nice to sort first by priority, then by colour

Multiple columns sorting would be great.

Hi @DanielStarke  In Acumatica default GI, if we mention multiple fields, system will sort the results bases on the fields sequence (First results will sort with 1st field then 2nd field and etc.)

Hmmm, it's not working like that for me. 

I am using two attributes stored in the user defined fields...
