Alphabetic Menus Sorted by Alphabetic Values

    This specifically applies to when I need to match Canvas names with iClicker-imported names, but, in general, can we have names (and other alphabetic-only values) in menus sorted alphabetically (last name, first name, whatever).

     

    Right now, when you import iClicker scores and names don't match exactly, you are given a drop-down menu to select the Canvas name that corresponds to the iClicker name ..... but that menu is sorted by Canvas (numeric) ID which might as well be a random integer to end users (and not actually something you see in the menu options). It makes it a challenge to scan the list and find the student you want to assign the iClicker grades to.
