 Replying to [comment:1 SergeyBiryukov]:

 Thanks for the clarification!

 Ok I'm astonished that the ''Slug'' column wasn't even there by default. I
 guess I forgot by now that it's apparently added by a plug-in.

 Also, the ticket #49679 you mentioned refers to the **Posts** list. Which
 I guess is relevant for those who run blogs or other post-based websites.

 I'm however talking about **Pages**.

 My website only has **Pages** and I don't use any posts (just like many
 other websites). Page slug is usually short - and slug is THE page
 identifier (as opposite to the Title which is just a commercial blurb).

 The **Slug** column is akin to the **File Name** column in macOS Finder or
 Windows File Explorer. I can't imagine it not being present there by
 default (and then not being sortable after adding by a utility).

 That's why I believe that a sortable Slug column should be in the core
 implementation of the Pages list.
