On the one-click screen, in custom columns, a useful additional information option would be an alpha-numeric character column of up to 4 / 5 / 6 (or whatever) characters, where the user could enter the additional info and then sort the selection order of the market based upon the entries within that column.

This would be very useful for ordering players on a team by shirt number, or ordering the drivers/riders in an F1 race/MotoGP race.

Sometimes you see the shirt/car/bike number BEFORE knowing exactly who the player/driver/rider is, therefore losing valuable trading milliseconds.

For example, you suddenly see red Ferrari #5 in the wall - is it Vettel or is it Leclerc? Of course it's Vettel, but that's valuable trading milliseconds lost.

Number #23 scores a goal - who is he? etc...

A custom column allowing the input of additional information of up to 4 / 5 / 6 alpha-numeric characters would be very useful for sorting the order of many markets.

If you would also like to see this suggestion implemented into a future BA version, please post a +1 to this suggestion. Thank you.

Thank you Dallas (again!)

The thing is, that not all numbers are used in an F1 race for example..

There are 20 drivers in this year's F1 Driver's Championship each with their own personal number displayed on their car.

Would it be easy enough to create a custom column with the following car numbers? (surely there's nothing as quick or easy as manually entering the alpha-numeric numbers into a column field?) In this example, I expect the single digit driver car numbers will need to be preceded with a '0' to correctly order in lowest to highest, or highest to lowest order.

3 - Daniel Ricciardo
4 - Lando Norris
5 - Sebastian Vettel
6 - Nicholas Latifi
7 - Kimi Räikkönen
8 - Romain Grosjean
10 - Pierre Gasly
11 - Sergio Perez
16 - Charles Leclerc
18 - Lance Stroll
20 - Kevin Magnussen
23 - Alex Albon
26 - Daniil Kvyat
31 - Esteban Ocon
33 - Max Verstappen
44 - Lewis Hamilton
55 - Carlos Sainz
63 - George Russell
77 - Valterri Bottas
99 - Antonio Giovinazzi

Another example of a market where this user entry alpha-numeric additional information custom column would be of great use is in a market like the English Premier League Top Goalscorer.

The current Premier League Top Scorers table is as follows:

23 - Jamie Vardy
21 - Danny Ings
20 - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
19 - Mohamed Salah
19 - Raheem Sterling
17 - Marcus Rashford
17 - Sadio Mané
17 - Anthony Martial
17 - Raúl Jiménez
17 - Harry Kane

As goals go in, the user could quickly and easily change the custom column with the goals scored and re-order the market.

Another good example of a market where this user entry alpha-numeric additional information custom column would be of great use is in a market like the English Premier League Relegation market this afternoon.

With two of the following three teams to be relegated (along with Norwich City), the EPL relegation market started this afternoon as follows:

34-26 Aston Villa (34pts, -26 goal difference)
34-27 Watford (34pts, -27 goal difference)
31-27 Bournemouth (31pts, -27 goal difference)

The above uses 5 alpha-numeric characters, add goals scored to the end and it would be 8 alpha-numeric characters as follows:

34-26+40 Aston Villa (34pts, -26 goal difference, 40 goals scored)
34-27+34 Watford (34pts, -27 goal difference, 34 goals scored)
31-27+37 Bournemouth (31pts, -27 goal difference, 37 goals scored)

...very easy to update an on-screen additional info custom column with the figures as the goals get scored.

The name of the additional information column should be called 'Notes' and ideally a 10 character alpha-numeric user entry field.

[ Horse Racing markets benefit by having 'Saddle Cloth', 'Silks' and 'Stall Draw' columns to help assist when trading, this 'Notes' column would be useful in ALL markets. ]
