          Michael, this isn't a duplicate of MDL-24572. We have clients requesting that a Folder Resource allow instructors to rearrange the order of files within the folder (which currently only sorts alphabetically), similar to how they can reorder activities in any order within a course. Ideally they'd like it to be AJAX/drag-and-drop based.

          Sorry, Chris. I knew there was a duplicate out there, but I linked to the wrong one. Could you add comments in the newly linked duplicate. It has votes already.

          I don't think this is a duplicate of MDL-14636, either. (At least, what I'm looking for isn't!) Both MDL-24572 and MDL-14636 are about what you see in the file picker. I'd like some sort options for the student view of the Folder Resource, after the files have already been uploaded. Thanks!

          ETA: Should I create a new issue for this? Does anyone monitor closed issues?

          I see what you mean now.

          An instructor could want an arbitrary ordering of files in a folder.

          Thanks for suggesting this.

          I put in a new tracker at MDL-35779 with some more details — probably you want to re-close this one and start over with that one? But I'm new to Moodle.org so I hope I haven't made too much of a mess!

          Thanks, Joshua.

          I've triaged that other issue.
