Model: Kasa
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: 2.27.0

You sort the list of devices; why not sort the list of Scenes???

 

I currently have 14 Scenes, & it would really be helpful if they were in some sort of predictable order.  They're not even in order by date/time of creation.

@Carl Thanks!  I should have suggested this last year, so it would be done by now. :)

Ha Ha! to be honest not likely.  It would likely be a low priority request, not saying that they would not have got to it but for example we have been waiting for about a year for the Smart Action feature to be expanded.  The likely hood of this going before something like that would be low.  But If i do hear anything on the request i'd be happy to let you know.

Well, it's been another year, & I now have 20 routines.  The fact that they are not sorted, is really annoying, & speaks to an incomplete implementation (you do sort the list of devices elsewhere, so your programmers do know how to do this).

 

I would have more than 20 routines, except for the fact that Google Home only sees the first 20 (another example of an incomplete implementation) when I try to use them in Google Home.  Yes, I reported that silly limitation to Google over a year ago as well.  No action.  In Google's case, I'm sure such a change doesn't increase the value of their stock options, so why would they bother.

 

Both are examples of a rush to get something out the door, rather than a complete implementation.  I speak on this as a retired software/firmware developer for almost 60 years.

Hello Dean,

 

As you can imagie such a request would and is very low in priority.  How the scenes are sorted visually is not as important as other more crucial events and actions that are needed within the product line.  We did add it to the list as promised but at that point it is really out of the hands of support and in the hands of the development team.  They determine which requests are addressed and what the priortiy is applied to those request.  We will send it up once more but I cannot speak as to if or when it will be addressed.
