Coming across two annoyances in entering Journals for organized play.

The first is that sorting by Real Date is a bad system for it. If pregen credits are used, then the chronicle is 'held' until the character matches the level of the pregen. This results in 'real date' games getting inserted further down the list from when they were played.

Secondly, the real date sorting doesn't work properly. Well it does, but it requires a leading zero before the month for February thru September. Otherwise they get places after December. Which is just annoying.

Ah, I got to January and it got worse. It moves it back up to the top without looking at the year.

Will do. Was hesitant to do so as it's technically working correctly, just that correctly was (imo) a bad system.

I think we'd also welcome any general ideas on how to sort journal entries. The dates are tricky because they're plain text rather than a regulated field (sorting ad hoc real-world dates is straightforward enough, but not so much Golarion ones), but we also don't want to only put them in the order they're added instead.

For SFS, on our chronicle sheets, we put a number on them, as to the order they are done for that character.. So, each chronicle sheet is always going to have character, Society number-character number, then chronicle sheet #.. So, adding a Journal number field, and we could sort on that...

Another issue is that only 1 faction is allowed when entering. Starfinder Society Scenarios make it possible to get Reputation with up to 4 factions on a single chronicle (01-05 100% success played online with a Dataphiles boon. That will give you Acquisitives, Second seekers, Dataphiles via boon, and either Exoguardians or Wayfinders by slotting their champion boon.)

I will have to reread documentation. Thought you could only slot one champion boot. Thus only one faction rep.

You only get one for your champion boon, but sometimes the scenario itself gives bonuses. In this case though, that's not a problem. Once you access the journal entry, input the first faction and hit add. Then write the info for the second faction and hit add again. Both factions will be shown in the journal entry.

It's a bug if it's allowing you to do this. If this is happening, that means that if the journal is deleted, not all the reputation added through that journal is removed - only the reputation attached to the currently selected extra faction would be removed.

Add additional journal entries if you need to add reputation to more than one faction.

At the time the reputation journals were coded, 1-05 hadn't been published, so there were no examples of ways to get more than one faction's worth of reputation per chronicle (other than the special boons, which are rare enough that they're not worth special handling, and can be handled through extra journal entries).
