Is there a way to split your watchlist, or create a sublist?

+6 votes
I'd like to keep requesting/receiving "Trusted List" status, but I'd also like to make my watchlist more manageable.  Is there a way to create a "Core" list (e.g., lineal only)?  Ideally, I'd like to be able to say where a profile being watched goes: lineal, collateral, other.  Barring that, a sort option to list profiles by who manages them would be useful.

Hi Liz,

Sorry, splitting or categorizing your list isn't possible. I've tried to think about how that could work efficiently but haven't come up with anything.

For sorting by manager, you just mean sorting your Watchlist page by who manages the profile? That's a good idea and should be feasible. I'll put it on the to-do list.

Yes, that's what I mean.  And thanks!
Chris - another thought, if it's doable.  In addition to sorting by who manages the profile, could you add a "sort by WikiTree ID"?  Or is that already an option and I just don't see it?
Thanks again!
Hi Liz, You're right. That's not an option. Instead of WikiTree ID, would you want alphabetical by LNAB? That's almost the same thing. (Currently you can sort by Current Last Name as well as Privacy Level, Edit Date, and Date of Birth.)
I don't know if LNAB would be worth the effort.  I'm sure I'll get used to seeing them as Current Last Name, but with all of the hardcopy work I've done using LNAB, I have a hard time figuring out who's who and who belongs with who - actually, an LNAB sort would help with that, as the kids would be somewhere near the dad (well, more often than when sorted by last married name; since Wiki ID uses birth surname, and - at least so far - the numbers are close, I'm finding that's the easiest sort for me...especially with all the coding I'm doing, it seems I recognize them by Wiki IDs better than by their Current Last Name).  

But - bottom line - just the option to sort by manager would do.
