Access to fields and domains has improved in ArcGIS Pro. However, one key function is still missing and some functionality was not carried over from ArcMap.
1. Loss of functionality - Pro automatically alphabetizes the domain list based on the domain code without warning after a code is added and the domain/field window closed out. It did not do this in ArcMap.
This is undesirable because we want a specific domain order that puts the most highly used domain values higher on the pick list for an application like Collector. We do not want to use a 1,2,3,4 etc. coding system for domains because AGOL and ESRI products in general do a poor job allowing export domain descriptions instead of domain codes. We want to share a feature service from AGOL with partners and have allow to them to export a legible (excel, shp) dataset.
2. Missing Functionality - Why can we not manually reorder domain coded values in Pro? The 'Sort Coded Value Domain' tool needs more functionality besides just sort by ascending/descending. In the ESRI ecosystem the only way to do this is in AGOL. It should belong in Pro too.
