First being able to edit related records using web app builder is AWESOME!!https://community.esri.com/community/gis/web-gis/web-appbuilder?sr=search&searchId=33647200-6910-4c2...

Now for my question. 

I set up in ArcGIS online a webmap that has a feature class and a single related table.  Under the configure pop-up i checked show related records and under sort options i set up the sort based on a date field.  Now when I open this map in Collector on the ipad it functions properly, showing the related records in descending order by date.

Arcgis Online sort set up

But when I use web app builder to set up the the editor widget it does not honor the sorting based on the web map it is created off of.  Is there another way to sort this data in web app builder?Web App Builder not sorting

I am running into a similar problem. In the WebApp Builder, when showing the related records to edit, the related records are sorted by a random field, instead of the one I configured in the webmap.

Trista,

If i recall correctly I think someone from ESRI told me they were aware of this issue and they were working on it for a future release, but no offical date to expect it to be fixed.

Same exact issue here. Only difference is I am using Portal for ArcGIS v10.4 behind a firewall.

This discussion was started in October 2016 and the original bug was reported in March 2016.  As of the December 2017 release of AGOL this is not resolved.

Does anyone have details regarding this issue, perhaps a work around or when we can expect Esri to fix the bug?

Does the solution of sorting related records in AGOL only work if the data is hosted in AGOL?  I have an AGOL web app builder app in AGOL 6.2 (bug was fixed in AGOL 6.1 according to bug documentation link above) where the related records are not being sorted.

So BUG-000095279 applies to being able to sort related records in the Attribute table of web app builder, but not the pop-up window in web app builder which the original poster was asking about.  The ability to sort related records in the pop-up window is covered under BUG-000113715 which says it is In Production Plan to be fixed, but no date is given.

ESRI tech support said sorting in popup window based on date was fixed last night with the AGOL update, but I am not seeing this in webappbuilder app in AGOL.  Does anyone else have an app with related records in popup window sortable on date that they can test?
