Sort Stored Buttons

Sort Stored Buttons

Please add a feature that allows me to sort my stored buttons by either button name Item number or preferably BOTH.   The default sort order of last date edited is useless.  I typically have 200-300 stored buttons and have to add/edit/delete them on a daily basis.  Manually looking through pages of buttons to find the one I want to work with is very tedious.  Even changing the default sort to button name would be a VAST improvement.

Hi @VIPAdmin

 

Thank you for taking the time to post your feature request. I've passed this suggestion onto our product teams and will make sure to keep you updated on any progression. 


Thanks,

Christina thank you very much for responding.  This is an extremely frustrating situation for me.  The sort feature would be immensely helpful.  Even if the default were changed from last edit date/time to Item Name it would be so much better.  However making the Item Name column title clickable to  sort alternating between ascending and descending would be ideal.

To give you an idea of the items I work with, we run a VIP access program for several major bands.  At each show the bands offer anywhere from 3 to 8 different VIP packages.  The Item Names follow this format...

BandName VIP MM-DD-YYYY CITY, ST (LEVEL)


With each of the bands having as many as 40-50 dates scheduled at any given time, you can see that the list of stored buttons can get quite long.  At any given time we might have several hundred stored buttons.  Add to that the fact that we have to edit buttons often as inventory changes, or prices get changed, etc, the 'last date edited' sort gets wonky very fast.  Being able to sort by name would make the task of maintaining our stored buttons much easier and less time consuming.

Thanks!

Hi @VIPAdmin,


After talking with our product teams, it doesn't look like we'll have a fix for this issue. The product you're currently using is a legacy product and therefore PayPal is not enhancing it. We are working towards creating the same type of experience you see with the standard buttons using our newest product Smart Payment buttons. Until that is out, we don't have a good solution for you. I apologize for the continued negative experience that this provides you and I will make sure that for our new product your use case is accounted for. 

 

Thanks,

Christina

Thank you for the update.  Can you please give me the following information...

1) At what phase of development is this smart payment button project?

2) Will you being doing an outside beta testing or pre-release testing with users such a me?

3) how do I sign up for testing?

4) What is the current ETA for a go live date?

Thank you

Hi @VIPAdmin 

 

Apologize for the delayed response, this product is in the early stages. I'd suggest reaching out to our Developer Relations team (https://twitter.com/paypaldev) and they can get you setup on any beta/pre-testing releases.

I appreciate that but I do not use Twitter at all.  Twitter does not play well with dyslexia.  I can get by for now with what I have.  Been tolerating it for a few years now.  I need something that offers the inventory and security controls of stored buttons but simply need to ba able to sort the stored data.

@VIPAdmin Understood - you can always submit a ticket with our Technical Support teams requesting this feature and adding your desire to be included in future beta testing. This gives us the ability to notate that you'd like to be included. I'll also make sure this request gets to the team building the new solution. 


Thanks,
Christina

Christina apologies for rekindling this old thread but I have a question about this new smart button process.  Where is a list of parameters that I can use with them?  Specifically what is the process for maintaining inventory control like was offered in the stored buttons?  Lastly is teher a plan to remove the stored buttons feature at any point?
