From server I’m sending the value of ‘sorted’ as true.
Still on the client(flexmonsterjs) the member are shown as alpha-sorted

Hello, 
 
Thank you for reaching out to us. 
 
We would like to confirm that this is not the expected behavior: if sorted is set as true, the members’ order from the response should be used as AZ order on the UI.
Our team will provide the fix to this issue in the minor release version with the ETA 2nd of November.
 
In the meantime, as a workaround, we kindly suggest setting the defaultHierarchySortName option to "unsorted", for example:

var pivot = new Flexmonster({
container: "#pivot-container",
componentFolder: "https://cdn.flexmonster.com/",
toolbar: true,
report: {
options: {
defaultHierarchySortName: "unsorted"
},
dataSource: {...}
...
}
});

 
Please let us know if this works for you.
Looking forward to your response. 
 
Kind regards, 
Vera

thank you!, I have already tried setting the defaultHierarchySortName option earlier to "unsorted". It worked 90 percent as expected.
