Name Sorting in Teamstats (responded, future.feature.request)

Postby Tacho47 » Thu May 04, 2017 12:12 pm

Players have a "First Name" and a "Last Name". So far, so good!

Within the Player Manager they are sorted by "Last Name" first, "First Name" second. So far, so good!

Being in the Team Manager, entering a team, going to the "Team Stats" i wonder, why the tap on the column header "Player" sorts the players by "First Name". That makes no sense at all!

Best regards

developers choose to combine names into a single field (first last) which make sense to me.... but yes a downside is the column sort is then by first name. (same is true on Team Web Site)

Can't say this has been a problem for me to date. When looking at team stats on my device, I am focused on sorting by stat of interest not roster names. But if you need to sort data differently, you can always email yourself the stats in excel, and work it there.

if you really (really) need a brute force workaround to sort players in a certain order on your device.... you could "highjack" the jersey number field in team roster and use it. Manually enter a sort number sequence in the jersey field, then you could use the # column in Team Stats to force that order. (I know very manual, sub optimal, and would need to edit jersey field in future games, bigger downside for me) . - just tossing out idea. if emailing in excel not helpful. .

Also to be fair, at the youth level, many players are only known by their first name to other parents on the team - it is not always common practice to learn everyone's last name at the youth level. So there is some logic behind doing this.
