The sorting function is pretty silly – you can only sort fields from A-Z (or lowest to highest). It doesn’t make any sense, and this seems like a SUPER EASY thing to fix. When sorting a number field, it will only display items from A-Z, with 0 at the top…and, even more confusingly, blank values at the bottom beneath the highest values.

We have a custom field that gives each task a score, the higher the better. However, when I go to sort the list of tasks by this field, it only shows them in ascending order. We need to see numbered fields in descending order so that the highest scoring items can be seen at the top. Please advise.
