We have a list grouped by content type: Now we want to sort our groups by the order of our list content types. Is this possible? The possibility of sort from a-z would also be enough.


I am aware that you can group by content type via SharePoint Designer by substituting the name of an existing grouping field in a programmatic fashion (More information may be found on this site).

I am less clear as to whether doing this makes the new 'content type' field reusable for sorting purposes.

Another means of going about actual sorting is mentioned on this second website.

Basically this involves either:

  • Turning on metadata navigation in the library, or
  • Using search refinement
