Sort Text Field – Data Input Options

WordPress Plugin Staff List – Sort Text Field – Data Input Options

Template Options > Staff Order > Sort Text > Data Input Options

Rather than making users to fill in the Sort Text field manually, you can set up a form rule to auto populate it, by passing the data from other fields. This option is intended to simplify the data entry but at the same time to allow a full control over field values.
You can disregard the auto populate option and choose to fill in the field manually.
Auto populate option
  • Data will be copied only when the Sort Text field is empty.
  • It’s copied when you update the staff member record.
  • Source and destination fields are not linked and subsequent edits won’t trigger the update.
  • Changing the input option won’t reset the Sort Text field values. Only new records will be affected.
