Stop phone number order changing

Evening all,

Its great that we can select work/fax/home/mobile as the type for each phone number, however it would be good if Cliniko didn’t then automatically sort the numbers by alphabetical order according to the number type. I suspect most clinicians would order numbers in order of importance, but then in the appointment book it can mix it all up.

For instance, elderly patient who books appointments herself but attends with one of two or three offspring on each occasion. I rarely want to call the offspring, but their numbers are in the file. I’ve entered them in the order 1. patient, and then 2-4 offspring. However the order it appears in file is 4/2/1/3 which is really annoying.

Would be good if the “order”/sort function was removed; this would then keep numbers in order they were entered.
