    Hello,
    For items under the content tab there's an option to list things in alphabetical order. But for marketing lists and segments, that option isn't there.

    It would really be helpful if we could sort segments alphabetically. A lot of my segments use the same naming convention for what they're used for. I have to hunt for them because they're scattered throughout the segments based on when they were created. Is there any option or way to get segments to list alphabetically and not by date created?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Hi @Michelle Dean

    Nothing would make things simpler for users than what you have proposed. However, there is a workaround of sorts that might help in a small way.

    At my company, in an account where we have lots of segments, we create copies of our master list and put them in their own folders. These master list copies are synced to the main master list using a list maintenance program.

    You can then name the folders according to product, location etc. or whatever criteria relevant for you. Folders can be organised as you wish, e.g. in alphabetical order (albeit this has to be done manually).

    Within the folders, you can then create segments relating to the criteria. These segments will still appear in the order created rather than e.g. alphabetically, but is a way to get around having a single master list with dozens of disorganised segments.

    As I say, nothing would be as good as ability to sort and search segments by name, creation date and other classic options. But if you are working in a way that means you have a lot of segments, the 'foldering' option might assist.

    Here's an example from my company – we organise by product:

    Being able to sort alphabetically or even move the segments around in the list would be great.

    Thanks,

    Sion,

    Thanks for your fantastic answer you gave several months back. I forgot to reply to say that. I'm wary of creating copies of our master list, as we're having issues with the current lists and syncing, so I don't think that solution would work for our setup. But, it is a pretty ingenious method.

    One method I discovered is to create a dummy/placeholder segment with criteria that will filter everyone into it (eg: email contains data). Then, name this dummy segment whatever the main theme you want for your segments. Eg; say you have 10 segments relating to behavior scoring. Create a dummy list with criteria of email contains data, name it 'Behavior Scoring Master Segment', and then recreate the segments for scoring under the dummy master list.

    At least that way, you can collapse your dummy/placeholder master lists so things appear less cluttered and you can group segments together.
