I have a kendo grid with filterable set to true.  I have a column that use a template to combine multiple data values and display them as one in the cell. On example of this is.

{
    title:"Customer Name",
    template:"#:customer.firstName# #:customer.lastName#",
    width:105
}

However, this column looses it's ability to be filterable.  another example is where i'm use a template where the data for the cell template is three booleans, if they are true it displays the text, if not it displays nothing. 

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Brandon,

Basically you should bind the column to a particular field in order to make it sortable.

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/web/grid#configuration-columns.field

Please notice that when a column is bound you can still display whatever you like inside the template, however sorting/filtering/grouping will work over that field which you specified in the column definition.

Kind Regards,
