Sort Workspaces Chronologically Rather than Alphabetically Completed
In the Workspaces tab in FireCloud, the workspaces are arranged in a table where it is possible to sort by different attributes of the workspace. I find that sorting workspaces chronologically is much more useful than sorting by name because I am generally more likely to be accessing more recently modified workspaces. As it is currently set up in Terra, I almost always have to search for the workspace I am looking for by name. This is a relatively minor issue, but it is something that comes up every time I want to access a workspace and it sticks out as a useful feature that was removed.
Great suggestion! Thanks for raising this.
Certain aspects of the cards view have proven insufficient. The inability to sort definitely sticks out. Our most recent design mocks have us moving back to a table view that allows users to control sort order. We're somewhat heads down at the moment working on billing set-up in Terra. I expect we will release this sometime in April.
Now that I have access to (counting) 17 workspaces, this would be super helpful, particularly since the workspace naming is not something I control, so I can't even make my "real" workspace stand out among the crowd...
Unfortunately the team has been locked up this month migrating FireCloud functionality that is critical for some users work streams. This is still on our board. We intend to release it prior to May 30
To close the loop on this, it's been possible for some time to sort workspaces by "Last Modified" date, which I for one really appreciate because I have a lot of workspaces shared with me. Like, really a lot 👀
