    the drugs come up in an order that makes it very difficult to find and select the right one.

    Thank you for your screenshot below:


    The current design follows the order of items defined in your dropdown menu.

    But I can escalate this as a new feature request for our backend team to consider.

    I cannot guarantee they will go ahead with the development.

    Well, I hope they will consider it, because it makes the product sort of silly. Imagine a user having to delete everything they have just because something new comes along an reentering it in alphabetical order.

    Perhaps they can real quick ad a search feature like in some of the other drop down menus? That would make it better.

    Yes, the feature request has been forwarded already by my colleague to our developers for further review and consideration. Included in the report is the option to sort the items alphabetically. Again, as he has mentioned, we cannot guarantee that this will be implemented nor can we give an ETA but we'll be sure to notify you here if we receive any updates from them.
