I recently wanted to add in a new Custom Field on the Customers Entity Type, but realised there is no way to insert a new field between 2 existing fields, or to change the sort order of the custom fields.
It’s really annoying if you have many custom fields setup with RegEx or other parameters, you need to re-create them all just to change the sort order or insert a new field. Probably if they have data stored, that data would be lost too (haven’t tested!)…
I checked the DB, there isn’t any sorting ability added there either.
Am I missing something? If not, can this feature be added?
It mentions about this already, but importantly I saw that sorting is possible on the Entity Search screen by right clicking and selecting “Design Mode” (didn’t know you can do that with default Entity Search screens!). You can then change the sort order after selecting the field by using the buttons as shown below:
Thank you for your reply, when I enable layout from the entity screen for the customer search every thing will be gone I got a blank screen, sorry may be my question is silly but I am not an expert like you, I am just try to modify the program to work for me and I am failing to do this till now.
