Sort field folders alphabetically

Hello,

I would love to have the "field folders" sorted alphabetically instead of random, in the view builder ("Prepare tab")

We now have a lot of them and it is very painful to find the folder we are looking for in this random list.

Hi Josselin,

Can I ask which version of Yellowfin 9 you are running? In my - admittedly brief - testing, I wasn't able to get the behaviour to repeat.

There's a few possibilities as to why;

  • It's been fixed in newer versions of Yellowfin; I'm running 9.5.1.
  • It could be due to language settings and is perhaps a bug.
  • It might be down to the number of field folders.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hi Chris,

  • I am running 9.5.1
  • I tried to change my account settings to run YF in english and was able to repeat the same behavior
  • I'm 90% sure I always had this problem, but when I had 5 field folders that was not a big deal

Hi Josselin,

Thanks for confirming.

I was also able to rule out it not being down to the number of folders.

I have a few more questions for you,

  1. How were field folders added? Were they added in the Admin Console or within the View.
  2. What's the order like in the admin console, under Field Folders. Is it the same as that shown in the screenshot?
  3. Was this system updated or is it a fresh install?
  4. Is content translation turned on?
  5. If a new one is added via the admin console, is it added to the list at the bottom or alphabetically?

Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this and resolve it for you.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hi Cris,

Here are your answers :

1. All field folders were always added within the view : usually, I realize I'm missing a field folder when I build the view

2. In the admin console, the fields are alphabetically order

3. The first install was a 9.1 or 9.2 and updated to 9.5.1

4. Yes it is turned on, but just for the sake of Yellowfin support team who don't speak French fluently, so it is not used

5. Neither, it appears in the middle of the list

Regards
