"content type" is missing from "group by" settings when creating a new view



When creating a new view the “Group by” function does not include “Content type” column. I’m sorry to say that this option will not be available in SP2010. (It is possible to do some work around with SPD, but they will disappear whenever the view is edited in SharePoint.

    I think this bug must be fix on the next Service Pack, it's an old funcionality that we used a lot on SharePoint 2007.

    If this is critical, wouldn't it be possible to add another column which mirrors the content type setting (hint: event receiver), and group on that column?
