Awards - Editing the Order

Numerical Order

The Reporter and computers in general put lists in order alphanumerically, so you can rename your award levels to make them easier to use in ascending order.

Here is an example of awards for hours increments that arrange numerically in an awkward pattern.

100
1000
10000
11500
12000
12500
14500
1500
15550
16500
200
2000
...
300
etc.

In this example, when you are in the list of awards you have to scroll to go from 100 to 300 hours.

Edit to Put the List in Order

Here is how to put the codes in order from the lowest number to the highest.

If you still had Volunteers open you will need to close Volunteers and reopen it to refresh the screen and see your handiwork.

It will take a few minutes to edit all those, but you will be rewarded by seeing that the new names still retain the original assignments to the volunteers while now they are arranged numerically from smallest to largest on your Available Awards list.

Award-01 100
Award-02 300
Award-03 500
Award-04 1000
Award-05 1500
Award-06 2000
Award-07 2500
Award-08 3000
Award-09 3500
Award-10 4000
Award-11 4500
Award-12 5000
Award-13 5500
Award-14 6000
Award-15 6500
Award-16 7000
Award-17 7500
Award-18 8000
Award-19 8500
Award-20 9000
Award-21 9500

An Alternate List Order

You could use only numbers by padding the low numbers with leading blank spaces.

   100
   300
   500
  1000
  1500
  2000
...
 10000
...
100000
