MDS2016 - Entity menu, ordering RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Under explorer, in the entity menu, they are ordered by creation date.
    Is there any way to order them alphabetically or even better having a custom ordering and the ability to show or hide some of them ?

  • We have this issue too. All of our entities were sorted alphabetically when we migrated to 2016. We name them in a way to sort of group the entities by their purpose. Now we have created four new entities on 2016 and they are all at the bottom of the entity list. Does anyone know if Microsoft is working on fixing this??

    *Edit - I have created a Microsoft Connect item for this. Unfortunately, I cannot paste the link but if you go to the SQL Server feedback area, you can find it by this title "MDS 2016 - Entities menu sorted by creation date "
