Hi @sanjini,


There are several approaches that you can use:

  1. Treat your column as an image and compare it with the stored one (where the order of items is correct). You can use the image comparison feature for this.
  2. Create your own script that will read all items and do the comparison by using the needed algorithm. This approach will require some scripting skills.


@Community, any other ideas?
