Has anyone worked out how Collector is choosing the sort order for feature types?

It's not alphabetical.  It's not in the order I added the features symbology? 

I thought I saw in earlier posts it's going to be fixed.  Soon?

Hi Peter,

Has your problem been resolved yet? Are you able to get the alphabetical symbology?

Thank you!

We just worked around the problem and/or learnt to live with it.

Re-publishing the services with a reconstructed dataset sometimes dealt with the issue.

Thanks Peter.

Can you please explain a little bit more details about what you did to reconstruct  dataset?

Thank you!

Are you using a domain for your feature type/symbology?  If you are using ArcMap, there is a tool to Sort Coded Value Domain that may be of help.  The tool can sort by code or description.

If you are using a service on ArcGIS Online, you can use the REST API to update the types in the feature's JSON file.  This thread has a brief discussion on this process.

Thanks Randy for your help. I will do some testing and see if it will resolve our problems.
