Thanks Jason. To me this is a key aspect of being able to implement MPLP in a way that is still user-friendly, and distinguishing between physical and intellectual arrangements (i.e. they shouldn’t have to be the same). I hope this is considered for future updates.

There are presently no alphanumeric sorting options though it seems like this would be a fairly common criteria for lists.
There is a discussion on this matter here:

Hello everyone:

I have a large collection of files that are physically organized by an ID number present in the records, but would make more sense intellectually to be displayed in alphabetical order.

Using rapid data entry for file level description, I’d like to enter the files based on how they are organized physically in the boxes, but then then re-sort the list alphabetically by title. Is this possible? The only re-ordering options I see are dragging and dropping individually.

Am I missing anything?
