List SortOrder Auto Increment

Occasional Advisor

List SortOrder Auto Increment

When creating a new contact list I can't find a way to Auto Increment the sort order.  If I leave it blank I see it is -1 in the UI.  I can just get all of the existing list SortOrders and add one to the highest value but that ends up a chunk of code and a few API calls for such a simple task.  It seems like that would be easy to implement on the API side.  Does something like that exist?


Re: List SortOrder Auto Increment

At this time we do not auto-increment the sort order value or offer a way to do that.  Definitely a feature worth looking at, I'll make sure to pass this on to our engineering team.
