When reordering switch conditions, move captions as well
Service Studio
Development Environment Release 91

If you have a Switch statement with conditions that have captions...

If you use Ctrl+Up/Down to reorder the conditions...

...the captions do not appear to come along for the ride:

I... I think they should :)

I think this is an outright BUG. It's been wrong-ish since they introduced this feature.

Working on it
expected delivery in Q4 2018

Good news, we're working on this!

Stay tuned :)

Bem, bem, bem :)

Any update on this?

Last week I had do some reordering of some flows and that included moving around the switch-conditions. I was surprised the captions didn't move along with the conditions.
Q4 2018 was a long time ago, and it is unfortunately still not added.
I agree with Justin...this is a bug, and should be taken care of.

Yes, still something that is currently happening would be nice to change this, it is painful to switch all the lines when adjusting the order of the logic

It seems to be fixed from version 11.9.2 according to the release notes. (First bullet point in Bug Fixing).

OutSystems most probably didn't update this still open idea that talks about the same functionality.

I can at least verify it is still working as expected (and requested in this idea) in the most recent version (11.10.22). Tested on both Traditional Web, Mobile and Reactive.
Captions do move along when you select one condition in the Switch statement and press Ctrl+Up/Down.

But, still: expected Q4 2018, actual delivery: Q4 2020 (and work in progress was already reported in Q4 2018).

Hello, Jade.

I'd like to let you know that your idea has been implemented!

The issue that you reported was fixed so from this moment on, reordering the switch conditions will affect also the captions.

You will be able to access this new feature as long as your Service Studio version is 11.9.2 or above (download).

Thank you so much for reporting this problem and keep your ideas coming!

Have a nice week,
