ConfiForms Table sorting not working


'Hello, world!'

I'm having an issue with ConfiForms whereupon the 'sort' functionality is not working for one specific column. 

If I click the column header, it sorts as expected - but using the 'sort' functionality on the 'Edit ConfiForms Table Macro' page; with the correct ID, 'team ASC'; returns...a weirdly disordered, only sort of half-sorted list. It correctly groups certain data together, but not in any sort of proper alphabetical order. Same with 'team ASC'. 

Again, if I click the column header, it actually does sort properly - but my client wants it to happen automatically.

Strangely, if I sort by, say - 'name' - it 'just works'. It seems to only be the field I need to sort by that exhibits this behaviour.

What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions on how I can make this work as expected?

Thank you all! <3

Hi ... @The Love Orchestra and welcome to this community

What field type is your devicePod field is?


It is a smart dropdown, that ironically does sort properly in the dropdown. thanks for the reply! :)

Smart field holds a UUID and when you say it to sort by a smart field it sorts the UUIDs it references

Basically you need to tell what field in the linked form record you want to use to sort it on

devicePod.field_in_ref_form ASC
