Provide an easier way to manage the order of the Choices

Post by RichWendrock » Tue May 07, 2013 7:12 am

We have a large number of choices for a number of products such as the model of motorcycle which a product will fit. We find that these models change frequently. We may add models and we may remove models from various products. The process of adding a choice and moving it into the appropriate place in the order is very time consuming. If AbleCommerce were to provide a way to manage the order of the entire list by displaying the order of each choice in a field that can be changed, this would dramatically improve the process. Here is an example of how this might work, Let's assume there are 40 choices for the Model Option, and the user wants to add a choice and make it appear as the 12 choice in the list. The user adds the choice and it appears as the 41st choice. To clarify this example, the position number of each choice is displayed in a field to the left of the Choice Name. Next the user will change the 41 in the position field to 12 and click save. AbleCommerce will scan the list of choices and detect the duplicate 12. Once it does, the second duplicate 12 choice will be moved to the place of the first duplicate 12 choice and all choices following it will be renumbered.

Please add this feature.

Thanks for a great product!
