    Updating sortOrder system field in List View

    I was wondering if it was possible to update the system field "sortOrder" which the List View's are defaultly sorted by.

    For example like in the "reorder" section of Design it is possible to update the numerical sort order values manually, but is this also possible for List View items, so I can choose the actual order in which they are shown?

    Hi Stefan,

    when you have setup a listview, in the config of that listview at the bottom you see:

    Is this what you are looking for?

    Hope this helps!

    Hey Michaël,

    Not exactly. I can see that menu and have it like this.

    enter image description here

    And the elements are displayed like this.

    enter image description here

    But I would like to be able to manually change their sort value in the backoffice, like it is possible to do when reordering the content of a document type. There it can be either drag-n-dropped, or manually set a sort value that it will sort them by. Like in this tutorial: https://umbraco.tv/videos/umbraco-v7/implementor/fundamentals/document-types/reordering/ it shows the following screen.

    enter image description here

    Is this possible for List View without having to make your own custom property? As in being able to change the sort value of the child items?

    Stefan,

    in the listview settings this won't be possible. What you can do is the following. Go to the content section > select your list view node > right click on the node or go to actions and select sort.

    enter image description here

    Here you can drag and drop the sort order.
