2397363 - Chinese Job Specific Competency display order on form


Job Specific Competency will display on form accordingly if Job Specific is selected in competency section on form template.

But the Chinese Competency is not well sorted while English Competency display in alphabet order. How are Chinese Comptencies sorted?

Can we control the order by GUID?

Reproducing the Issue



Job Specific Competency order on form is controlled and only can be controlled by ‘Competency name’.

English Competency name is ordered in alphabet. But Chinese Competency name is ordered in character encoding which is by default. There is no way to control the Chinese Competency order manually.

So competency order can't be controlled by GUID currently. This can be considered as an enhancement request. Customer can visit to submit this idea.

As a workaround, we can add ‘01’ ‘02’ ‘03’ or ‘a b c d’ in front of the Chinese Competency name so that it can be ordered in alphabet.
