2088629 - Picklists: How do I arrange my picklists alphabetically?


How do I arrange Picklists in alphabetical order?


SuccessFactors Platform / BizX.


Currently there is no feature available as a self-service option within Admin tools to activate the alphabetically sorting of Picklists. In order to activate this feature, please contact SAP Customer Support (under the component LOD-SF-PLT-PCK) or a Partner to have this activated for you, as it is necessary to have access to Provisioning, to enable this option.

The picklist alphabetizing feature is by picklistID and sorts capitals first and lowercase characters second. So the following order would apply:

  • APicklist1;
  • BPicklist;
  • apicklist.

NOTE: If this feature is enabled, it will arrange the Picklist alphabetically and will ignore user manual sorting.

For SAP Customer Support team and Partners:

In order to sort picklist alphabetically:

  1. Go to Provisioning > Company Settings;
  2. Check the option "Sort Picklists Alphabetically";
  3. Save.
