Filtered dataset / sort / hidden columns


Board Regular
If you a have sheet that is filtered, and hide columns, then sort (via any viewable column), does the hidden columns also sort?

I have a fairly sizable file (12k rows, 37 cols; several columns are for me) that I want to send to a few team members to sort/verify/update their data. I'm concerned if I hide a dozen or so of my columns after they do their thing when I un-hide columns things won't line up; assuming they will sort a couple different ways before returning to me.

If the hidden columns are in the range of data being filtered, yes. Or if the range has been converted to a Table, yes.
