More sorting / filter options in chef manage UI


is it possible to implement some more sorting / filter possibilities in the chef manage UI?
It would be helpful for us to be able to sort the nodes by headline (e.g. by node name or IP).
Furthermore a search by node tags would be helpful. (e.g. show all nodes with a tag "Volkswagen")

    Manage is a deprecated product, so no further feature work is being done on it.

    I suggest opening an idea against Chef Automate for this feature instead.

    similarly, i would love to be able to get a donut based on values for a given attribute (say 'platform' and seeing a pie chart of what each node count for each platform)
