Hey all, Adrian @ Webflow here. We just added support for custom field orderings in the Webflow Designer data manager!
Gone are the days of removing and re-adding fields to get the order right :). Now you can drag-and-drop them where they belong when creating the collection, or anytime later if you change your mind. This functionality is available immediately in the Collection Settings pane in the Webflow designer.
The order you specify persists across the designer data manager and CMS data editor that your clients see. You can order the fields in whichever way makes sense for your data model and have that automatically reflected across the whole Webflow tool suite.
Field order also conveniently persists across the dynamic binding dropdowns for a faster workflow:
Let us know if you have any questions, comments, or bug reports. Happy designing!
