One of our go-to resources is a surprising one – The Alphabitizer (https://alphabetizer.flap.tv) is helpful in many ways. We use it to alphabetize presenter names during a show, organize presentation titles, and more. It also has helpful features like automatically capitalizing names in the list and randomizing items in a list in the case instead of alphabetizing.
First just insert the random list of names, titles, or whatever it is:
Then use the options to the left to perform whatever function is needed. For this example, the goal is the staff names organized by last name.
And voila, a super-quick alphabetized list! The options can be changed one at a time, so the list could be run multiple times until the final list is whatever is needed. For example, it could be run once to alphabetize, once to capitalize, and again to number.
