Dear Monique,

ArchivesSpace does not offer a way to reorder resource components by particular criteria. You can move individual or groups of components by highlighting and dragging/dropping or using the options on the toolbar in the tree display at the top.

(You can reorder in search results by using the Sort by options on the results screen.)

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] sorting of children


I'm new to the list and using ASpace.

I created Resource with a series called 'Reference Use Copies'.  The 'children' in series are people's names which I would like to display alphabetically.  The display currently shows the names but in the order they were entered which wasn't alphabetical.

Is there a way to sort the list automatically without having to hand move each child to the appropriate place in the alphabet? I didn't see (or it wasn't obvious to me) anything in the documentation.

Thanks very much.

Monique -
