Sorting a collection by time entities were linked/added

Is it possible to sort a collection (to-many relation) by “most recently added/linked”?

Is the order of the items in a collection (as retrieved in javascript) consistent/determinate/predictable?

My use case involves determining the “most recently added” User in Assignees, to decide which User to notify.

Currently, the order of items in collection fields is ‘manual’, that is to say, you can drag and drop to rearrange. The next iteration of the collection fields will include views that support sorting on entity fields.

I’ll wait for dev to chip in with how the items are sorted when retrieved programmatically.

This does not appear to be the case with Assignees - I suppose it has a customized UI.

Yep, you’re right, Assignees is a ‘special’ field that doesn’t present as a collection field, but more like a multi-select.
