Property to make first sort direction in Grid be Descending instead of Ascending
Currently we do not have the ability for descending to be first. It's either one, both in the asc/desc order, or none. You can changed the setting in the kendo javascript file but it'd be useful to have it be a property.

+1 this would be a really useful feature to configure ourselves at runtime.

When a user first clicks on a column in a list to sort we need to be smart about the correct initial order. For example a column with text should sort A-Z, however, a numeric column should sort high-low. This is more often the expected behavior. Date columns
General Rules for sorting on first click:
Text Columns - Sort A to Z
Number Columns - Sort high to low
Date Columns - Sort recent to oldest

Configurable sorting please, hopefully with Grid Default Sort config (without having to sort the DataSource.)

When clicking on a grid column header which is sortable, the first click will sort asc, then the second click on the header will sort desc and a third click will cancel the sort

is there any way to reverse this order so the first click will sort desc, second click asc and last click no sort?

Imagine we have a "task list", with a column "last_update_date", it's clear that, if I click on that column, I want it "order by DESC" by default. So, I also request that feature.  But, we need it "by-column", not a global setting to the whole grid.

This feature will be helpful to specify sort order for numbers/strings/date as per the requirements.

Please consider providing this feature, to me it appears a basic one, having a grid displaying data with few columns with count, customer will be interested to see the top values first on each click. I thought it would be configurable easily. Surprised to know it does not exist in current product.

Also should be able to disable either descending or ascending sort so for example it would just do a descending sort and then unsort.

It would be great if this property was added, so that the first click of the column header sorts the data descending.
