Auto Update Sorting Order

Currently when you create a new SharePoint app that connect with list data, the browsing gallery picks the list fields for the default version. But many users will want to tweak the fields shown in the form.

However, if they change the fields shown/not shown, the sort order (top right corner of screen) OnSelect may work illogically since it's sorting against the original sort order configuration. (So, changes will have to be made to the sort order via the browsing gallery control which may be missed by the end user unaware of it.)

My idea would be that as the fields are changed, the sort order is automatically updated, using the 1 to 1 replacement of fields.

 

so,  if [Company Name] was removed, and replaced with [Last Name] in the list of fields to show/hide;

 

IF Company Name exists in the sort order parameters, then Power Apps would replace it would the reference to Last Name; AND

IF Company Name was the default sort by field, then Power Apps would replace the default sort with Last Name

 

 

 

 

Thank you.
