[Archivesspace_Users_Group] ARCHON sort titles not migrating

I don't see a "Finding Aid Filing Title" field in my data:

And I did not create a user defined field for SORT TITLE at this point.  It was a preliminary test.  So is it safe to say a plug-in is necessary?

Not sure if this helps to know, but we had the same issue. There is a field called "Finding Aid Filing Title" within the Finding Aid Data which seems to perform the same function, but the sort titles did not migrate to it.

According the the specs, this should be migrating into a user defined field with value "Sort Title"-can you check to see if it ended up there, Jesse?  I don't think, however, that ASpace would sort on that field w/out a plugin.

We are migrating ARCHON records to  AS 1.4.2 and the collection titles are coming over alphabetically by title and not the "sort title."  For example, in ARCHON, the "Papers of John Doe" are listed under D for DOE, but when brought over to AS, all the collections beginning with "Papers of..." are listed under "P."

Does 1.5.2 fix this?  Or is a plug-in required?  Thanks.
