Sorting for additional Fields
Id like to be able to move where the field appears in the backend instead of the newest item always being last.
For example I had a client ask me to add times to the opening acts. There were already 3 opening acts set up within the calendar with different atributes for each.
Since each new time atribute matched with an opening artist I made sense to group it with that artist like the rest of the atributes, not have all the times at the end of the list so I had to re-input all the opening acts.
I want to add a field that goes before certain additional fields that already been added but I can't. I don't want to remove it either because other organizers already had it filled out when they submitted their events and we still need it. It would be easier if we can rearrange the order.

The fact that the only way to re-order is to delete fields and start again is what kills. With established events already in place, to have to delete all that data just to insert one field near the top is crazy. I am in a tough situation right now and could use this feature. The Additional Fields were big part of why we upgraded to Pro.

Can ACF be used to manage existing custom fields created in TECPro? Or would those fields need to be recreated using ACF, and the data re-entered?
Thanks again for posting here. It is an idea we would like to consider in a future release if it gets more votes. For now I would recommend again Advanced Custom Fields.
Me too please!
I agree with this. For many of us we use the calendar for different kinds of events. It would be nice to be able to reorder so that the additional fields for a certain event were together
Thanks for the suggestion! This is a good idea and we'll consider it for a future release. In the interim you may want to consider using a different plugin for your custom fields that will give you more flexibility like this. I highly recommend http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/
