Hi Donnelly,

We have that same issue. It appears that having a filing title overrides any finding aid title displayed in the public view. It looks like part of this was addressed in a JIRA ticket before (AR-759<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-759>), where the PUI switched from sorting by resource/finding aid titles to sorting by filing titles.

Correct me if this is not what you're after, but I would like to see 1) the finding aid title, not the filing title, displayed on the finding aid page and PDF, and 2) if possible, for resource lists to sort by the filing title but display the finding aid title.

We recently migrated from AT.  We’ve noticed in our PDFs and  EADs that the finding aid filing title is showing up where we’d like the finding aid title to  display.  After a quick test, I found that when the filing title field is null, the finding aid title does show up.   We’d like to have both, but having the filing title rather than the finding aid title  display is problematic.  In addition, in the resource lists (browsing and search results) the filing title displays instead of the resource title itself.  Again, if we delete the filing title, the collection title displays.

Is anyone else having this problem? Is there any way to solve it?
