Alphabetic set sort not working on mobile

What’s The Bug?

Alphabetic sort of Sets by tag/multi-select value does not work in IOS. This works perfectly on Mac.

See attached images.

While the example has multiple sorts, this happens with one sort, and the order seems to be pretty random with different sorts. Note that like items aren’t even grouped, let alone sorted.

How To Reproduce It

I have a Set of Tasks. Tasks have a tag style Relation “Impact”. The values are “1P” “2P” etc.

On my Mac, these sort properly.

On my iPhone, the sort does not work at all.

This is critical to my task management system, so I can’t really use it on iOS right now.

I recently changed my way of prioritizing tasks, and now can’t use my phone for this at all.

Please let me know if there is a workaround to get sorting these items to work properly.

The options in a select relation are also not sorted.

Speaking of which, can it be less taps to choose a select options right now you have to click add, choose something , then dismiss.

This bug is really a huge problem for me, and seems like a pretty simple one to fix. Is there an iOS release planned any time soon?

Same on Android
