Sort teams on FSM schedule board

Dear all,

 

is there any possibility to define a sequence / sorting order for teams based on which to display them on the schedule board? It seams that currently teams are always sorted in an alphabetical order on the schedule board and that this can’t be changed or handled differently.

 

Of course there would be the workaround to just include a sorting number / alphabetical character into the team ID but I’m searching for a more flexible / user friendly solution.

 

regards,

Thomas

Hi @Thomas Widmoser,

 

Did you try using the App Param: SCHEDULE_BOARD_PERSON_SORT_BY ?

Hi @Kalana Surendra ,

yes but that only gives the opportunity to sort members within the teams not the teams themselves.

Determines how team members are sorted on the Schedule Board. Values are 1 (sort by person ID), 2 (sort by first name), and 3 (sort by last name). 

The goal would be to have eg team B at the top and team A below team B on the schedule board.

Hi @Thomas Widmoser ,

 

It seems that there is no baseline functionality to sort the team id as there is no field to track the sequence.

Hence, suggesting the below workaround.

  • Add a new column to the Team table using custom metadata (you can use a user_def field) to save the sequence.
  • Insert a new text field to the Teams screen, such that user can enter a sequence number when adding a new team record.
  • Add a  primary table constraint to the schedule board screen to sort the team_id using the sequence number.

 

Hope this will help you.

Hi @Nethmi Kularathne ,

that’s a nice idea which we immediately tried to implement. Unfortunately, teams are still not ordered/grouped by team.uder_def1 after the setup has been done.

Is this somewhere already successfully in place and we are simply only doing something wrong in the config or was this just a suggested possibility to test?

Hi Thomas,

 

This is only a suggested possibility that you can simply implement and test to achieve your requirement.
