Is it possible to re-order (usually alphabetically) project specific select values once they are in use? At present the only way I can see to do it is to delete by all removing entries from values that are not in order and then re-add each value in so they are alphabetical but I have situations where that is really not practical.
Which version of the plugin Project Specific Select Field are you using? Of what type is your custom field?
For Project Specific Select Field or Project Specific Multi Select fron version 2.x you can ask your JIRA admin to do alphabetical sorting of the values (go to configuration of custom field context and use alphabetical sorting there)
It is planned to provide the functionality also to project admins in a future release. See #33: Allow sorting of values on the Project Specific tab and #17: Allow Sorting of Values.
We are using version 2.0.3 currently, I am system admin and cannot see the ability to sort anywhere, would you be able to provide a screenshot?
Also you suggest we can change the type of custom field but I have not seen that as an option so everything is always a simple text field so is that in a later release or am I setting up fields in the wrong way?
Attached are the three screen shots of creating the field (nothing suggests I can say what type of field it is) and then looking at it and inserting data. I cannot see how it is sorted by default? If you could advise me on where to look I would be grateful, thank you.
You are using Project Specific Select Field (simple) and option values should be ordered by option value by default. I am using ActiveObjects from Atlassian to get the data from the database, but looks like "order by" is not working very well in ActiveObject. What database are you using?
Previously a user input dates of meetings and they added them in so they were chronological e.g. 8 Jan 2014, 5 Feb 2014, 3 Mar 2014 but now they are listed 3 Mar 2014, 5 Feb 2014, 8 Jan 2014 because of the automatic ordering. I will make people aware of the way round it that you have mentioned, What we are ideally wanting is the same thing you can do with a custom field which is that a new value gets added to the end of the list but you can then move it and existing values around to wherever you wish including sorting alphabetically. Thanks again.
