RE: Change multi-select list order

We have a custom item field of the multi-select type with the List/Record selection being items. It’s just a field we use to add substitute options as a reference between items. Currently these selections are just displayed alphabetically, but we ‘d like to be able to control the order to imply the preferred substitutes will be at the top. Is there any recommendations for this or is that just the behavior of this custom field type.

Thank you

Go to the Custom List page via Customizations > Lists, Records & Fields > click on the list you need to update. You should be able to update the order there.

Well currently the field is just referencing inventory item records, and not a custom list record. I see that if I make a substitutes list I could change the order that way but it might be cumbersome for users as we have hundreds of substitutes. If the field references the item record like it does now the user doesn’t see every single item on the list when trying to edit and add/remove items.
