Why are the custom fields sorting options different on desktop and mobile?

Brittany Joiner Community Leader Jun 25, 2022

I noticed the other day that on the desktop browser, you only have these options for sorting custom fields: 



Aka, only the date fields. 


But the same list, on mobile has sorting options for other custom fields, like numbers, and text fields. 



Any idea why? I assume this is operating as expected and it's just a difference between mobile and browser based,  but just curious. 

My current workaround is using a board button that will sort the list by the custom field i want (inspector) that isn't available when i click the sort options on the list in the browser, so i don't necessarily need a fix but was just wondering if there's a reason those other custom field options are included natively in the list sort actions on desktop but are in mobile.

Hey @Brittany Joiner,

Good question indeed! But sadly, I don't know why the mobile version has these additional options to sort your custom fields vs. the web version. So I will pass on your feedback to our team and verify why there's this difference between them.

I'll keep you posted!
