Numbers sorted as Numbers not Text
Currently if you sort by number in a list of the Jobs or Tasks, numbers are not actually sorting in numerical order, they are sorting by digit order. Example: ClockShark sorts 10, 1003, 10125, 1015, 11, 1105, 1420, 15, 15010
If it sorted numerically it would show - 10, 11, 15, 1003, 1015, 1105, 10125, 150010
Companies that are number driven, not alpha driven, this is an important difference, and very frustrating that there really isn't a way to sort by NUMBER.
Hey Cindi, thanks for reaching out to us with your feedback.
Our columns for things like Job number, task code, etc. are all sorted alphabetically since a large majority of our users input both numbers and letters.
I can definitely see how this could be improved, however.
One thing I should mention as a quick workaround is to use the same number of digits for numbers. For example: 121, 13, and 145 will sort in that order. But you can correct this by using 013, 121, and 145.
With limited work time and lots of ideas, we prioritize all suggestions with the most traction and support. Let keep the votes coming and we will add this.

I noticed this the other day and it was very frustrating trying to find our current jobs. We number our projects by the current year 21001 for example, and all our work orders are a separate 4 digit number that just counts up, 8000 for example. Right now, it sees 8000 as a larger number than 21001, so the sorting is off.
