watchlist Sort retention

The watchlist is not retaining it's sort criteria. EG. Alphabetical. Next login its lost its sort order. I originally thought this was an Android app only problem but it appears to happen on both Browser based and Android app versions. This had occurred since recent updates.  Sort order of watch lists previously retained their setting.

How long ago?

 

I think that feature was lost in 2017?

(I don't recommend you try to find it on that thread. 21 pages of comments)

 

Here's the same complaint 6 months later:

And this one got an official reply (a couple of months earlier):

In Android app, My Watchlist sorting order is not saved. I prefer to sort the entries by Release Date. But when I exit the app, the sorting is set back to List Order. I don't want that. I want the sorting by Release Date. It used to be OK, but after the update, the sorting is not saved.

sounds like the identical complaint, filed on 20Sep.

I imagine that was originally filed as a Problem, but is now an Idea. That implies that a staffer converted it without commenting. The author may not even know that it was converted, because it has 0 votes.

Perhaps a staffer will merge this into that thread, But hopefully they will comment to both authors when doing so.
