    When i'm importing a guest list, I already have the names in alphabetical order. However, when I'm importing my guest list, somehow the names get dis-ordered. I've included a couple of screenshots to show what I mean.
    In the first shot, you can see I'm treating my first column as a header row, fairly straight forward.
    In the second screen shot, you can clearly see that "Guest 1, Guest 2, etc..." are clearly in alpha order. They're arranged by Last Name (which in this case also happens to be the Group Name- Guest 1, 2, etc are the "first names"), and all looks good.

    However, as you can see in the final screenshot, when the guest list is imported into the Guest Management tab, the Guest numbers (within the "last name" group) have become jumbled up. so now, if seating the Askerne Winery guests around a table, if I Select the group and drag & drop to a table, they'll be seated out of order.

    Not a huge deal, as things go. And I know I can drag individual names onto the table, thus seating them in alpha and numerical order. But my OCD side is dying a little inside.

    How did this happen? And how do I fix it? it seems to be a bug within Vivien somewhere.
    I tried moving the guest 'up' to re-order them, but it won't move within the table. and I can't sort by "Last Name, then First Name" or something like that.

    Any suggestions? 01.jpg
