CTRL+UP and CTRL+DOWN for StaticEntities

Service Studio
On our radar
I'd like to see CTRL+UP and CTRL+DOWN work on the records for static entries... have it rearrange the display order and their "Order" parameter if it is there.

It would be helpful to be able to reorder Static Entity Records as you can with Entity Attributes.  Currently the only way to reorder is to delete and then recreate them all in the desired order.

Hi Sienna,


Actually, there is a way to reorder them automatically, by setting an Order By attribute in the static entity's properties window (double-click on the static entity).

Does it cover your use case?


Cheers!

It is possible to reorder by changing the Order Attribute, however firstly it is a real pain knowing what Order number they should be, especially when reordering multiple records at the same time, and also it is not unique, so you can have more than one with the same Order number so that doesn't necessarily help.  I want to be able to drag and drop to move or use Ctrl+Up/Down as with the Entity Attributes.

Ok, Sienna, I see your use case and agree with your point of view. In that scenario, your idea would speed up the reordering.


Cheers!

:)

Can I also add a quick sort method by right-clicking on the static entity records folder and then selecting "Sort By -> ..." where the ... would then be Label, ID, or any other added property? This would allow me to quickly sort the entries in the list after I bulk added them.

Yes, that would be handy.
