I have found Query orderby but what I want is for them to be in alphabetical order from the LAST name without having the file name be LAST NAME, FIRST NAME. Is there any way to drag and drop them in the order I want and have them stay there?
Hi Shawnaculp – I needed to do the same, and have a list that’s long enough and updated frequently enough that the checkbox ordering option didn’t work either. Solution I found is a bit counterintuitive, but gives full control and is easy to modify going forward:
- Sort by post_date.
- On the All Team Member choose “Quick Edit”
- Modify the post Day. For me I put our first person about 2 months ago (we have 50+ people on the list).
- For the second person, edit their post date to one day more recently.
- Continue for everyone
Going forward, when adding someone new, you can easily just set the date of the person to the same as the person before them alphabetically, but like an hour later. This way there’s plenty of gap between everyone that you should never run into an issue of having too many people to fit into too small a timeframe (what I ran into when I tried just adjusting hours/minutes on the same day that I posted everyone).
Hope that makes sense. Happy to clarify further if you need.
