Pick List sorting has not been scoped in Business Configuration, however you still see that Pick list is sorted in Descending Order of Logistics Area.
Reproducing the Issue
1. Go to Business Coanfiguration workcenter and Implementation Projects View.
2. Select the Project and Edit Project Scope
3. Go to Questions and find Scoping Element Manufacturing, Warehousing, and Logistics
4. In Outbound Logistics: Pick List Sorting, below question is not scoped
Do you want to sort your pick list by logistics area in ascending order?
By default the Pick List Sorting will be in Descending Order of Logistics Area.
If you wish to sort it in Ascending Order then the question mentioned above has to be scoped in Business Configuration.
Note: Pick List sorting criteria is only based on Logistics Area.
This is because it will enable the Warehouse users to pick the products in an order that is ideal without wasting time.
System is behaving as expected.
