Question

Feature Suggestion: Reorganization of Records

Sometimes, when adding records, I end up going back and adding something else. It would be nice to be able to reorganize, without having to delete and recreate.

At a minimum, will you add the option to reorganize DNS records via click-and-drag?

And then, if it’s not too much trouble, maybe a tree style hierarchy in the same format? Meaning, users can click and drag a record above or they can “attach” a record to another one, which will be organized by an indentation?

Current example: CNAME CNAME TXT A CNAME MX A A TXT NS NS A NS

Ideal example after having been able to reorganize in a tree style hierarchy:

= A (subdomain #2) = ----CNAME = A (subdomain #1) = ----CNAME = A (mail) = ----CNAME = ----MX = ----MX = ----MX = ----TXT (spf) = ----TXT (dmarc) = ----TXT (dkim) = A (root site) = ----CNAME = ----NS = ----NS = ----NS

The equal = signs here represent the drag & drop icons that would be attached to each item. The dash ---- signs here represent indentation, since I couldn’t indent in this editor.

Pretty please with sugar on top? And a cherry?

Hey @stevenhost,

Great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!
