Sorting criteria for single select fields

When sorting, when the user chooses a “sort by” field that is of type single select, it would be very helpful if you could choose to sort the field by the user-chosen option order in the single select field. As it is now, the single select field can only be sorted alphabetically. However, this lacks intuitiveness. If the single select field options can be rearranged, then the user-chosen order of options is significant. Thus the user should be able to sort that field type by his chosen option order.


Hey @preahkumpii, welcome to the Baserow community! I like your idea of sorting by the order of the select options instead of alphabetically. I’ve created an issue on the backlog for this (Order single select values by the select option order instead of alphabetically (#786) · Issues · Bram Wiepjes / baserow · GitLab) and we’re going to discuss this.
