Is there a way to set a pick list's values to a certain order?
On the Business Object of the Pick list create a field called SortOrder
Field Type: Number
Total Number of Digits : 4
Now, navigate back to your Pick List and use this field as your Sort By Field
And then you can add your values 1, 2, 3, 4 …etc. in the pick list values.
This logic can be applied to any pick list to order the values desired.
