Web points not sorted alphabetically

Andrew Heard shared this problem 25 days ago
Solved

The points on my devices are carefully named to be in useful alphabetical order. But when synchronized to Locus Map Web, the same points are in some random order making it very difficult to find the point you want, especially when there are large numbers of points in the folder.

Until there are methods to sort/ order the points, please at least, sort the points by their name.

Locus Map Web points below - random or no sort order?

PS. I note from https://www.locusmap.app/finally-you-can-plan-routes-between-caches-on-the-web/ this functionality is most likely "in the works", so thanks!

Hello Andrew,

Unfortunately, so far the order of points is in random order.

I pass on your problem to my colleague Ondra.

Please be patient - he's on vacation this week.

Thank you for understanding.

Have a nice day

Hello Andrew,

I am sorry for the current state. Points and tracks are sorted by update time in DESC order. I agree that it doesn't make much sense for points (shared code). I have already changed this ordering for points by the name. You can expect this change in production in ~2 weeks (as stated I am currently on vacation).

Soon, I should also start working on the ability to sort and filter your library. This should improve usability a lot especially for large libraries :).


Kind regards, Ondrej

Thanks Ondrej. That's a BIG improvement when there are a large # of points in a folder.

Hi there, ordering of points by name is already deployed to production. Thnaks for reporting this. Some kind of basic could be implemented until the end of the year. This should again improve UX of working with your library on the web :).
