Q: Ever wanted to sort to items in an array?
A: Use a Code app as a Zap step: https://zapier.com/apps/code/help

Code step configuration using JavaScript

NOTE: Map your line items array to the right side value for the “Set” Input Data variable in place of “A,B,C,C,B,A”.

Sort items in array in ASCENDING order

 

COPY THE CODE

let Set = inputData.Set.split(","); // creates array by splitting Input Data Variable at commas

Set.sort(); // sorts array in alphabetical and ascending order

output = [{Set}];

 

Sort items in array in DESCENDING order

 

COPY THE CODE

let Set = inputData.Set.split(","); // creates array by splitting Input Data Variable at commas

Set.sort().reverse(); // reverses the sort order of the array items

output = [{Set}];

 

Results

Code step results to sort array items in ASCENDING order.

 

Code step results to sort array items in DESCENDING order.
