    Question Manual sort items / sort by other field

    Does anyone have a mode / code hack to allow SS 4.x to sort products manually? We were doing sort by age, which worked fine for a while, so newest items were up top, but now we want to re-sort the items so that like items come up next to each other.

    But I don't see any way to do that other than renaming ALL our items and then sorting by name, which takes away our 'sort by age' capability.

    Does sort by age go by order of the product ID or some field in the database that I can manipulate by hand (Since i'll only be doing this type of 'reset' once every couple years)?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    It's sorted by Product ID.

    If TWT is reading this...it'd be nice to have a "Date Added" that would determine Age. I recycle product IDs, so the Age Sorting is worthless. This feature is common in POS software (including mine), and it makes complete sense in a virtual POS world.

    That is a good recommendation although we will have to add it in a next release. I would suggest adding it into the tracker as a feature request.
