Sort by distance on list view

In an earlier version of FulcrumApp you used to be able to get a list of records ordered nearest/furthest from the current GPS location. It doesn't appear that the record list is sorted this way any longer? That sure used to be a handy feature!

    Hello Paul,

    The nearest feature was removed, some time ago, in favor of the new list view. I will share your request to have some sort of distance sort feature added to Fulcrum.

    I am going to move this to the suggestions section, so that others interested in this functionality can voice it.

    Thanks, Alex. How are records sorted in the current list view?

    Hello Paul,

    Currently you can sort the records by: Record Title, Record Status, Date/Time (record) Created, and Date/Time (record) Updated.

    Ok, thanks. Yes, it would be extremely helpful to have the capability back
    to sort by distance. We actually used to use it fairly frequently for some
    of our signs inventory stuff, for example to quickly find the record
    associated with the *nearest* sign of a particular type rather than having
    to hunt-and-peck by clicking pins on the map.

    This topic has just come up within my company. We were also discussing that this would be highly beneficial. Are there any intentions to include the option sort by distance again?

    There is still a possibility of us adding some ability to sort the data by distance. There has not been a lot of interest in this functionality, so it has been placed on the backlog for now.

    Is just having the sorting option good enough for your needs or would your needs also require the distance to the record to be displayed?

    Thank you Alex for your quick reply. That´s good news. It is actually of quite high importance for us. Could you include the sort by distance list view?

    The best I can do, and what I have done, is share your interest in this feature with management and the development team so that they can take it into consideration when developing the product roadmap.
