Updating the On-Screen Sort Order of User-Defined Fields Follow
Using the Priority assignment for User-Defined Fields
Within each module of Midnight, the ability exists to label and custom fields which allow you to enter, search by, filter and report off data that may not be a standard field in the system. These user-defined fields allow you record and manage information so that you may create custom reports and extrapolate data that your team needs. Once the user defined fields are set up, the data type cannot be changed, but if you find you wish to use the fields differently or have discovered that after the fields were set up, a different order for them would be best, you have the ability to change the order the fields appear on screen.
The sort for the user-defined fields exists in Admin. To add or change a sort for an existing user-defined field, go to Admin using the gear in the top-right hand corner of Midnight. Within the Admin Lists on the left-hand side of the screen, scroll down to user-defined fields. In the drop-down near the center of the screen, select the module that has the fields you wish to update.
The Priority column which is first column of the user-defined fields controls the order the fields will display on the screen. If there is a field that is not in a logical order, you may edit that field (as well as any others) to change the onscreen layout, allowing you to make it easier for the team to enter and manage data. The field names themselves will remain and you can still pull the data to reports as desired.
To change a priority, click the pencil to edit the line for a given field. Change the priority. Save the change using the update icon on the far-right of the line.
Note that changing the priority of one field does not automatically update the other fields, so be sure to update the other fields to reflect your desired sorting so that each priority is only used once.
The changed fields will appear in the new sort order within the selected module.
