When setting up single- and multi-select custom fields and adding all the options to choose from there is no way to automatically have them sorted in alphabetical order (ascending and descending)
This would be important in terms of usability when team members have to select the appropriate option from the drop-down.
Depending on your preference such selections might be set up in the order of importance but a lot of times alphabetically as this is just the most common.
So let’s assume I have a custom field for job positions in an HR board and I list all positions in the drop down I have to manually sort them (drag and drop) and whenever I add a new name for a position I have to ensure it is added in the correct position. Which is okay if there are just a few options but if there are more it gets a bit tedious.
Especially considering that there might be more team members (coordinators) for example that have to regularly edit custom fields and add options. A lot of times somebody forgets to add it in the appropriate alphabetical order which then messes up the usability when team members have to select an option.
The same applies to other fields that have a lot of options. It would be awesome if there could be a button that automatically sorts them either in ascending or descending order.
P.s. have seen this existing product feedback thread but it is not exactly what I would like. As I would like the alphabetical sorting feature in the settings available upon custom field creation
