Is there a way to change the sort order in the filter widget, especially to Natural Sort?

I have set up an expression using the unique values option.  Nice as it gives me the list of values to filter on, but they are sorted alphabetically, and I need a natural sort option.

Really confusing the the user when things are way farther down the list than expecting.

W1 and W2 should come before 10, and so on.

Looks like thisWant to look like this
W10-1W1-1
W11-1W2-4
W1-1W10-1
W2-4W11-1

Hello,

I was trying to migrate a dashboard to EB for the sole reason of the filter option being able to have more flexibility in the statements. I need a filter that will select values from within a list so it was suggested to use EB.

Similar to other posts here, I am finding the sort options not great. For instance, I would like to be able to filter the data by year and so I'm using all unique values. However I would like it to open with the most recent year as the default value.  I tried creating a view with year values sorted descending but the filter still shows the years ascending. I also don't see an option to have the last year be the default. Is this possible?

The frustrating thing is the dashboard selectors allow default values with first and last and apparently more functionality than the filter widget EB. However the dashboard selectors only have equal/does not equal for options hence the reason I'm trying to now use EB. Now I'm struggling with sort and default values in the EB filter. Hopefully I'm just overlooking settings.

Thanks!,

Kathy

Hello, the same thing is happening to me with the months of the year.
I tried using the default values ​​however the widget sorts it automatically without respecting the order of the given list.

PLEASE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE IMPROVEMENT

Super unfortunate this is a thing. We need control over the sorting order, can't just be alphabetical.
