here is a artical by microsoft that describes how to create a new view. You are able to create many views of the same list , giving each one a name that appears in the dropdown list.
 When creating the view in the sort section (near thee bottom) ,  select your custom fielld , you whish it to be sorted on. then save the view .
I hope this helps
