Suggestion: Option to auto sort tags in the tag field.

Post by FireBrand2026 »

This would probably need to be an option as I'm sure there are probably people out there who manually pick the order of their tags for important reasons, however for myself I find it mostly annoying that tags are not sorted alphabetically like they are on most websites. As it makes it much harder to glance down and check to see if a tag exists on an object with many tags.

Suggestion noted, thank you. Indeed, at least some of the users will definitely want to sort labels as they are- in sequence as they are entered. Will see if that's worth the extra option.

+1 Would love to see this. Since using tags one of the most annoying things about them is having to remember to add them in order or delete them and re-add everything since I can't even move them around.

+1 for me to the only order I care about tags being in is alphabetical.

+1 Would like a way to standardize tags into a reliable non-manual order.

I vote for this as an option- I have tags I use daily, and some I use only seldom. So, I have the regular used tags first.

+1

+ extra suggestion

If possible have colored tags sorted to the front.
If not possible then still + 1 as some auto sorting would still be better than none. (at least for me)

Would be great to have a few different sort orders-
-Alphabetical sort
-Manual sort (let us create our own sort order by drag and drop)(also let us rename it) (would be great to let us create more than one of these)
-Most used tags sort

New to the forum hope I'm doing this right.

+1 For me this would make tags a lot more intuitive as it is how most tag clouds work.
