Ordering Categories

January 2023: the current dashboard release has new graphics and some interface changes. Many screenshots still reflect the older release and will be updated shortly.

You can generate the printed catalog grouped by category.

When doing this it is common to want to order the categories in a specific order. By default, the categories will simply be listed in alphabetical order.

If you look at the item category list you will see a Sort Index field that can be used to adjust this ordering:


An example taken from a demonstration event.

The categories will be sorted first by sort index and then by alphabetically by name.

This means the categories you want to come first should have a lower sort index defined and those categories you want to appear later should have a higher sort index value defined.

You can adjust the sort index directly from the item categories list (see Edit Rows) or double click on a row to drill into its details.
