I am writing just to let you know that with Q3 2014 you can create groups based on a property from your business object (by setting the new property GroupMember) or by working with CollectionView with GroupDescriptions. Check out our online documentation
for more details.
I do hope this change will make the experience of working with RadTileList better.
