We have a policies list view on SharePoint 2010 that presents information in this fashion:
[+] Category : Requirements (2) [+] Subject : Library guidelines (2) 2.1. Photocopying of entire books is discouraged. 2.2. Users must notify the staff before removing books from the reference area. [+] Subject : Permissions (2) 1.1. Outside researchers require authorization to access the library. 1.2. Staff can do free reading in off-hours.
We need the
1.2. to appear before the
2.2. items. So the group
Subject : Permissions needs to appear before the group
Subject : Library guidelines. In this one case, it can be done using descending order on the groups. But it won't always be alphabetical. We need it to respect the
Item Order first when sorting.
Those items (
2.1.) are stored in a rich text field,
Sub-Item, meaning sorting isn't available. We've added a number column
Item Order to allow sorting on that, but then the grouping gets in the way. When grouping, it sorts ascending or descending; it first sorts on the groups, then on the
Any way to solve this with the standard OOTB views in SharePoint? Thanks.
