Can User Set Sort order via button, then script grabs sort order?

I currently have a script that works great. It sorts as I want it to. Occasionally there are times when other users with less experience in FMP need sort in a different order. Yes, there is the "Sort Button" in FMP -- which most are comfortable with, but then the 15 or so other script steps must be performed manually -- which has too much room for missing steps and carelessness.




1. I would like to create a script that "gets the sort order set by the user"  and then uses that in script instead of the sort order I originally set.



2. I would also like to create a merge field that lists the order of the "sort order set by user"



Are either of these two options able to be created?




Thank you,
