[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Component reordering

We have also been having problems with collection components reordering themselves, however it doesn't seem to be because of a later edit that drops the component to the bottom of the tree. (We are also using version 1.1.2.)

I've attached two screenshots of a finding aid I created in Archives Space last week, in about 3 sittings among two days. (Screenshot 'Finding Aid 1' comes before 'Finding Aid 2' in the order sequence.) This collection of audio tapes and CDs is chronological, and I've highlighted the collection components that aren't in their correct place. It seems to be random, and they are not objects that I went back in later to edit.

Hi All,

I've gotten a couple of reports that some users are still seeing components being reordered in ASpace v1.1.2.

These seem to not be from doing any actions in with the tree, but on occasion editing and saving a record results in having the record dropped to the bottom of the list.

Just wanted to hear from anyone who has seen this in v1.1.2? If you have, can you describe what happened right before?

Apologize about this issue...it's been a little complicated, since there have been multiple points that data gets put into ASpace ( migrations, importers, manual entry) and multiple ways the data gets manipulated.

best, chris.
