Sort Gallery by list display

Hello,

 

My current formula for Gallery1 reads:

Distinct(SortByColumns(Filter('TABLE', StartsWith(Department, TextSearchBox1.Text)), "Title", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending)), Title)

So this populates my Gallery Titles with the Departments for all users and because each user has a department attached to them I use "Distinct" to only get one of each department in the Gallery.

I however (and after doing some searching) cannot find how to sort by the List order. I don't want Alphabetical I just want the Gallery to populate as the list has the Departments.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi ara,
I believe that distinct populates from the first instance of the item in the list then rejects any other identical items until it finds the next unique item. If you want the departments sorted in a particular order I suggest you create a new list in the order you prefer and bring it in as another data source.

If this is so then it should be populating the Gallery as I want it as my Department column is in the order I want it to display, however it is sorting the Gallery by alphabetical order instead.
