Fix UI for "Assign Machine" Dropdown User List

Adam Schwartz 4 years ago updated by Caitlin M Barnes (Product Manager) 4 years ago 2

When you have a lot of users, the RemoteWorkforce "Assign Machine" dropdown can be very difficult to navigate. It's a simple HTML dropdown with all the users listed, seemingly in no known order. Finding a user when you have 50+ users is very difficult as the dropdown takes up the entire screen and you still have to scroll up/down at random since there's no order to it.

Easy fix: Please update the UI so that it either is sorted (by name, by date added, or other) and/orr add an autocomplete dropdown such as Select2 - https://select2.org/ so we can type in and get autocomplete results.

From what I can tell, it is sorted by order of user creation in Control. I agree this is very hard to deal with when you have many users, and the ability to change how it is sorted would be great! Please add the ability to sort by Name at the least.

Thanks for the feedback - We're looking to add this to the next version of the Remote Workforce extension!
