      Description

      The course block always sorts the list of courses by name. It would be useful to also be able to sort by course start date. This would enable older courses (typically ones that have finished but are still being kept available for reference) to be pushed down the list.

          I think it might then be more sensible to write this an optional block for comment.

          I'll put something together

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
