[DONE] Inaccurate sorting on Relationship Fields

What is the expected rule for trying to sort on a relationship field? As seen in the screenshot below, I have tried to apply a sort but got no logically sorted list in return.

These ā€˜Team Member Profilesā€™ in this case are relationships to another app where their name, info, Member, is listedā€¦but when looking from this location via related fields, the names are not listed in any Alphabetical way by first or last name at allā€¦Is this a bug, or am I just missing something here?

Hi @CarsonRedCliffLabs

thanks a lot for reporting this issue! This is indeed a known limitation when sorting by the relationship field (which is caused by the fact that the relationship fields can repeatedly refer to other relationship fields and data types as the first field, which makes the title calculation very complex). We are working on removing this limitation.

But there is already a simple way to make this possible. You would just need to add a calculation field that refers to the relation field, and then you can sort alphabetically as you wish.
All you have to do is enter the name of the title field in the app with @ in the calculation field and write [0] after it.



thanks @Leo helpful and quick as always!
