[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Title List Sorting by Old Name

There's a field under "Finding Aid Data" called "Finding Aid Filing Title." We found this because when we imported from Archon they were all wrong and we had to fix them. If you enter the DACS compliant title in "Finding Aid Title" like "Benjamin Tallmadge collection" and then add the "Finding Aid Filing Title" that you want it to sort by, so "Tallmadge, Benjamin collection" it should sort it by last name. Is it possible that you updated the title but not the filing title? I'm not sure which title the list of resources uses.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Title List Sorting by Old Name

We've decided to abandon DACS for the title rule for ease of access so I've been updating our titles to go "Last Name, First Name Papers". While on the public side the title shows up as the changed name, it still sorts titles by the old name. I have also noticed that no matter what you change the title to, on the list of Resources on the staff side, the name stays the original. Is there somewhere else that's *not* the Title field that I should be updating as well? Or is it something that it just takes the ArchivesSpace database a bit of time to catch up?
