Using Translations to Change Labels

Desired functionality:

  • Go to Catalogs and use the search functionality to sort items by Item Labels (i.e. item labels with the name “Preferred” appear at the top of the item list in a Catalog).

Intended functionality:

  • Items may only be sorted in the Catalog by the parameters specified in the drop down.  When items are loaded into a Catalog in a specific order, they are automatically assigned an internal database ID based on their order in the data upload.  This ID is unique to the item name. 

Why attempting to work-around the behavior is a bad idea: 

  • Any attempt to “delete” existing items and reload them into a Catalog will result in an error. This is because the item names are retained, remain unique, and remain associated with the original database ID.
