Is there a way to sort the dropdown list alphabetically in the Filter widget in Web AppBuilder? It seems to be a random sort, which is challenging for a user. I have "Ask for values" checked to prompt a user of the app to set their own filter, and the filter is set to Unique. This populates the dropdown list, but in no particular order. I'd love it to sort alphabetically or allow for a default sort to be set.

Thank you.

Hi Jessie,

Do you have this application shared publicly? I just set up a filter with the following settings:

When I use the Filter widget it does appear to sort those values alphabetically:

Do these settings match with what you have configured? 

Thanks,

Katie

Here is a link to the app: http://utah.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=7723c9bb92e9442b8794a6bdad73d01f

My settings look the same as yours. I wonder what is different about your dataset?

Hi Jessie,

We've identified a bug with sorting alphanumeric values properly in the Filter widget. We have a planned fixed for the next ArcGIS Online update (scheduled for Dec).

Hope this helps,
