Alphabetize Option Set Items

Is there any way to do this? I have a growing list of keywords in an option set list that appear in a couple different multi-dropdown inputs throughout my app. For ease of use, I’d like them to be alphabetized. Doing this manually in the database is becoming cumbersome, given how many keywords there are and also the fact that reordering items in this view is buggy. But it doesn’t look like there’s a way to sort the options in the multi-dropdown without switching the type to text, which breaks a lot of other logic I don’t particularly feel like rehashing.

Am I missing a simple way to do this?


@rmorgan did you find a solution for that? Looking for the same

Maybe this would work:
Add another hidden repeating group (in a pop-up for example):

And then filter that repeating group as your input source

Can’t you just do a regular sort on the options? (sort by Display, or any other text attribute for it to be sorted alphabetically).

Yes, you can just add :sorted after calling the options in the expression. This feature was added in an update a few months after I asked this question.
