How to sort by custom data


If I define a custom data "SFC_priority" with SFC, and would like to show SFC selection list which is sorted by SFC_priority. The reason is operator can select the first priority SFC to process easily. I know ME can define shop order priority, but SFC priority is needed in my case.

1. Is it possible that the custom data SFC_priority which just be configged into SFC selection list (SFC_TASKLIST), no any customization?

2. If question1 answer is no, how to do?

Thank you!

    Hi Cary,

    SFC Table already has a PRIORITY column as standard, so I think you shouldn't need to add a user-defined custom data field, but I'm not sure how this value can be set except I assume it is copied from the Shop Order's priority on release.

    SFC Selection List already supports PRIORITYcolumn but I haven't checked if this is the SFC Priority or the Shop Order Priority.

    It is not possible to add custom data fields to the SFC Selection List wihout a custom enhancement.

    Hello Cary,

    You are right, on shop order release the shop order priority is populated to the SFC and there is not standard way to modify the SFC priority. The POD lists show the SFC priority.

    You have two possibilities, depending on the ME version you are using:

    1. If you are using 5.2, there is not way to show custom data in the SFC selection list. But you could use SDK to change the SFC priority.

    2. If you are using 6.0 (I think >, you can show custom data (material and shop order) and data fields (SFC) in the POD lists. And of course, you can also use SDK to change the SFC priority.

    Best Regards,
