Re: What is the best way to sort the list items

I would ask basic questions,

Why is the sorting need to be in the List. If it is for display, you can always display the module after sorting using Text/Numeric or combination of both. I agree it is a hassle to sort every module in every dashboard. But fundamental question is why the list need to be sorted in itself.

 

I am not up for a "Alphabetical" list to mock the sort function based on first few characters. Not scalable.

 

Thanks

Hi @kavinkumar,

 

After sorting in the module. You applied a Boolean formula. Why is this done?

Also tell me, after sorting, how will the list get updated?

Just to say, if you haven't already found it we have released an action to automate the sorting on a list

@Mahesh.Darsi 

Just following up on this year old post. In case you haven't seen it you can now sort list items with an action.
