Ability to sort and filter Collections bound to a Multi-reference Collection

It's really a bug but, we will call it an improvement:-) The sort field is missing from a multi-reference collection list that is on a collection page. See my post from last year https://forum.webflow.com/t/cannot-sort-multi-ref-dynamic-list-on-a-collection-template-page/33587 as well as a recent post from someone else https://forum.webflow.com/t/no-sorting-options/40086

    This is the no code issue for so many!

    Even if I could rearrange the pills in the CMS editor that would be a manual workaround--that would take like an hour to implement as a temporary measure surely?

    Being unable to sort multireference lists basically makes them useless in 50% (if not the majority) of use cases--anything where you have more than a tiny handful of items. I don't understand how it could even have been released without this feature, let alone how several years later it hasn't been fixed. Webflow seem to have thought of only a specific use case, like listing two or three co-authors on a blog post. They haven't thought about all the other cases, e.g. having a list of publications under an author item, where each author could easily have 100 publications, which you would naturally want to add to over time and sort by date. This is absolutely a bug, not a feature request.

    This has to happen! Why hasn't this happened yet :(

    IMPORTANT:

    This may just be a semantical issue, but this is NOT JUST a problem for Multi-Reference Fields. I'm experiencing this issue with ALL Collection Lists on Collection Template Pages (as opposed to Static Pages), whether they involve Multi-Reference Fields or not. My sort/filter/limit/paginate options aren't appearing unless the Collection List is being used on a Static Page.

    I will be pretty bummed if the Webflow team fixes this for Multi-Reference Fields but not for all Collection Lists on Dynamic (Collection Template) Pages.

    I badly need this. Please implement this ASAP!!...I believe every webflow user (if they use it long enough) will need this feature at one point or another

    This is super critical for my website.

    We have team collection members who teach certain subjects - a multi-reference field.

    Please take this one back to the future and re-instate!
