ANSWERED:Groups: allow changing group order

Recommended Posts

(This is not about sorting the dragons in a group, but about sorting the groups in the group list.)

 

The groups are currently listed in the order they were created.

(That is, they are sorted by Group ID.)

 

Visible in:

- dropdown on a dragon's view page

- /group/add/[dragoncode] page

- https://dragcave.net/group

 

It would be nice to be able to change the order.

 

Finding the correct groups to add a dragon is a lot easier when the order of the groups makes sense to the player.

Putting the most used groups at the top allows for very quick adding of a dragon with the dropdown.

 

Suggestions:

a) Add an actual group sorting feature (like custom sort for dragons)

b) Allow to choose between sorting by ID and alphabetical sorting.

As a person who's brain come up with a random order for groups or is lazy because, i need this group but that groupl will contain over 100 dragons, the groups are in an order that is uneasy to use.

 

If we only can have the alphabetical sorting option i will need to name my groups like 'AA Actual Name' 'til 'ZZ Actual Name' or like '00 Actual Name' - '99 Actual Name' and then 'AA Actual Name' - 'ZZ Actual Name'. tongue.gif

Support, I'd like to be able to pick the order the groups go in.

 

Cheers!

Support! Otherwise I am going to have to carefully go through each gen in order whereas I'd like to be able to go through each dragon in turn and not have to worry that '2nd Gen - PB' is after '4th Even Gen' or something like that tongue.gif

Support. I deleted my groups the other day because they were out of order and didn't make sense to me. rolleyes.gif

Support!

Sorting options I'd like to see:

 

- ID / creation date (current only option)

- Alphabetical

- Most used (I.e. which ones you have visited most often)

- Custom

 

I think that gives enough variety to cover most users' needs without using custom sort, but for those who still want it their own way, Custom is available. Like with the main scroll. smile.gif

Support! My groups are out of order and it's bugging me. Deleting and re-creating them is a lot of work, especially for those with a lot of dragons.

Yes please!

 

Because when I finally finish making all the breed and morphology groups, I want to make my project groups, and move them to the top of the list.

 

Because there are a lot breeds.

Not only do I support this I HIGHLY expect it to happen. Not having this makes no sense after all wink.gif.

 

Even IF I was organised enough to create the groups in the right order for my personal preference that would die the moment a new breed comes out (if I wanted breed groups) or I started another breeding project (for breeding project groups).

I support this as well. The order of mine is bugging me, but I have too many dragons to bother redoing all of them.

I seriously need a group sorting ability. Because when the new holidays roll around, if I end up making new groups for them, they're going to be at the bottom of the list instead of behind the past holiday groups... And right now I've got placeholder groups with a single dragon sitting in them because I know I'm going to need a group for those later. And I've got waaaay too many dragons to unmake/remake groups when I get new dragons. biggrin.gif

Adding the ability to custom-sort the groups list feels like a lot of overkill, but I have no problem with changing everything to order by name.

Sorting by name alone would be wonderful! I can deal with remembering the first letter of each group. biggrin.gif And searching for them that way!

I think that would work as a sort of compromise.

This is all I want. owo

Would the sort by name be an optional thing or an automatic thing?

 

'Cause I made my batch of breed groups in the same order the dragons appears on my scroll, and I'd hate to lose that.

I would love for this to happen. Having my 2G Prizes way below my 3G Prizes has been bugging me. I like to organize too much xd.png

This would work for me, too. Especially since it's easy to rename a group. Thank you.

Yes, I too would love a way to order my group list, whether by name etc I don't care as long as I can do it :)

I would still prefer to be able to custom sort, but I can work with ordering by name. It's easy enough to add a prefix to get the groups where you want them.
