  • Planned
Currently the list of members is ordered by Surname only, displayed as
Firstnames Surname
but first names randomly.
Could the order inclue First name after Surname ? e.g.
Abigail Ashford
Heidi Ashford
Rebecca Ashford
Ann Baker
Clive Baker
See attached image of current display

We have recently made this change to alphabetical by surname and have no current plans to make a further change, but as always happy to take feedback from other clubs on this

Surely this request is logical - a large club will have many members with the same surname. I don't see how random sorting within a surname is in any way desirable or how introducing the change would disadvantage any user.

Hi Justin, it's not about disadvantaging anyone, just a matter of taking time to let this change bed in before making a new one. We will be looking at changing all member lists to surname, forename as part of future developments, can't put a time scale on it at present but it is in the plans
