Is there a way to have dynamic filters display options the way they are sorted in a multiple-choice drop down, rather than in alphabetical order?

    I have a multiple-choice field "Status" with options that are listed in the order that I would like them to appear, which they do on my forms.  However, when I create a report and use the Status field as a filter, the filter options on the side of the report are listed in alphabetical order.  Any way to get them to list in the order I have them on the drop-down for the field, other than adding a leading number to sort them?  I'd rather not do that as I have some formula fields that calculate based on Status that I would then have to change also.  Thanks!

    Hi Sarah,

    There is not currently a way to do this currently. There has been a feature enhancement request submitted and our Product Development team is looking into it. You can use the leading number as a workaround for now until the changes have been made.

    Best,

    Jeff
