Change Priority of Color

It would be extremely useful to change color priority when sorting backgrounds. For example : Red sorted on top, then yellow, then green. As an ER working on Triage, this would be incredibly helpful.

    I understand the logic but when looking at overdue tasks on the screen without going into each patient you can't tell how important each task is from the whiteboard. We were hoping to be able to show something here to allow easier priority but thank-you for responding and I appreciate you working me through the logic

    Kind Regards

    Hello thank you for commenting -

    At this time we do not have that as an option beyond sorting by color. At a high level When that sorting option is chosen the logic behind the sort is numeric-alpha. I have done a video HERE to show you an example. I understanding wanting Red to be Emergency but if you would like Emergency/Critical color block patients to be at the top of the sort you would have to work within the confines of the current program logic.

    I'll leave this idea open for continue voting but I did want to pass on the logic and a suggestion as a possible way to make it work.

    Cheers -
