Need to be able to have more control over the order of groups in the Kendo Grid, sort on the text is insufficient

We currently use grouping in the Kendo Grid, however the groups are always sorted alphabetically by the name of the group.

In our case, we want the groups to be sorted another way: an order value that corresponds to the group name.

To do this, it would be good if we could specify a comparison function, and have it take a object we provide (a map between the group name and order value).

We currently work around this by prepending a character to the group name to have it sort correctly (see screenshot). As you can see, it's not very appealing.

We are using @progress/kendo-react-grid@4.6.0

Hello, Francis,

Thank you for the request, we agree that it can be a useful addition to the kendo-data-query package and its grouping functionality.

We will monitor the interest in it and plan it accordingly.

Looks like a duplicate of something my colleague already submitted. But I think this is a better description for the group case. That one considers other sorting.
