  1. On many list displays (e.g. Category/Type/Role) the first column of the tabular display, to the left of the ‘ID’ field, is a monotonically ascending integer which I suspect is a display index of some kind, which could be useful for debugging but can’t envisage functionality for normal users, and similarity in values with those in the ID column could potentially be confusing. Is this un-named column necessary? / should it be hidden or zero-width?
     

  2. Default sort order – appreciate that lists can be sorted by clicking on the column-head label, but would suggest that a consistent approach is taken to the order in which items are sorted for display when a screen first opens. This is currently not the case, for example:

  • Equipment Categories defaults to alphabetically by name

  • Person Overview appears to default to ascending ID

  • Equipment Overview appears random – neither alphabetical or in ID order

  • The list of Role options when associating an Operator with an Image Set -  neither alphabetical or in ID order

            I would suggest that alphabetically A..Z for the ‘name’ of the item would be a reasonable and useful default.
