Sort by linked field

I have an Engagement table, which includes a field for Client, another table. In a repeating group I’d like to show a list of Engagements but sorted by Client name and that doesn’t seem possible in a direct way. What’s the best approach to solve this?

Using vanilla Bubble, if you want to sort your Engagements by Client name, then you’re going to have to add a field (text) on the Engagement table, to record the Client’s name to use for sorting purposes (as you can’t sort a table by a field on a linked table, at least not in vanilla Bubble)…

Alternatively, you can use the ListShifter plugin to do just that:
