New MYOB Essentials - Allow employee names to be sorted in alphabetical order in new pay runs

My business transitioned to the new MYOB Essentials a few days ago (January 2023) and I have run my first pay run, it has been quite the journey!  This idea would significantly increase efficiency and save me much needed time as this now takes a lot longer to do!


When doing a pay run, my employee names are not in alphabetical order and there is no way for me to sort this list alphabetically. This is a nightmare as I have more than 50 employees and my timesheet software exports to Excel in alphabetical order. Now takes me much longer and is prone to mistakes.

Yes, I am having this exact issue!  Why isn't it in alphabetical order?  It makes no sense!  The older version was way better.
