Columns with numbers should sort using natural, not alphanumeric order.
When sorting by a column with numbers, can you please make the console sort correctly and not just on the first digit? Currently I see 99, 94, 92, 909, 9085, 90, 9, 9, 9, 8852, 8771.......... and that is not very useful.
Yes indeed, same when you check deployments in SCCM, you add the column "Number Errors", you cannot sort by error count since the column is treated as text :(

This would be incredibly useful with boundaries and collections names after IP address/subnets
this feedback form should also allow screenshots.
If you add any columns with any quantities in the "deployments" list, it sorts them by the first integer.
This means if you want to say, sort your deployments by the numbers of errors, and you sort it in descending order, it shows you "9" before "899" as if it thinks that is a bigger number.
This has been a defect for a long, long time.
Automatic Deployment Rules - Preview updates window should use numeric sorting for the Required column.

It’s my opinion that any place we’re doing alphanumeric (1, 10, 100, 2, 3, 31, 4) vs natural (1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 31, 100) number sorting, it’s a bug. :)
Can you let us know specific areas that you’re seeing this?
