Order of Forms in Lexeme based on alphabetical sorting of numbers – unusual and hard to grasp
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

User Story:: As a user, I want to predict where information is in the UI so I can find what I am looking for

Context of use: I assume the user would to read a list of forms, e.g. to see if what they want to add is already there or to see where the form they added is.

Current Problems: Currently, the forms are sorted by ID (which is a number) but alphabetically – so 11 comes before 2. (thus, it only happens when there are more than 9 forms)

Possible Solution: One way to improve the situation for the user is switching to sorting based on the number value which is more common in everyday life than sorting numbers by alphabet.
