Q: Why are Group Member lists formatted with no space between first name and last name and not sorted in alpha order? Can this be changed?
A: Group Member lists are ‘hard coded’. The format and sequence of names cannot be changed without additional expensive programming which we do not want to invest in. The good news is that lists are automatically updated without any work as member user/profile records are updated. The drawback is the format cannot be changed. Group lists are also in chronological order of when a member user record data update is done. Names at the bottom of the list have had their profile most recently updated.
