Order of states in types should be equal to the order of ‘State’ transitions in Workflow tab.

Order of states in types should be equal to the order of ‘State’ transitions in Workflow tab.

In one of our item types the state’s pick list value "ALM_Started" the order is not correct. Currently it is ALM_Prepared, ALM_Started, ALM_Implemented, however we would expect ALM_Started, ALM_Prepared, ALM_Implemented. The order of the states in the pick list is dependent of the position of the state. Can the position of the state "ALM_Prepared" be changed (move below ALM_Started) without impacting other State pick lists.

The pick list is not sorted alphabetically, it is arranged by order. The order never changes for the pick field depending on the current state of the item. We would prefer to sort the picklist order displayed depending up on the current state of the Item.

I agree. Currently, the only way to handle this is to make sure that the state positions in the whole list can handle all the cases across all types.

Granted, most states only apply to a few types, but I have a few states that apply to many types and this is still a data management burden.

We need to configure the order of the state per item type and not for just one item type.

Same for me, sorry if that wasn't clear. You still have my vote!
