SharePoint out-of-the-box functionality does not support fully customizable rank rearrangement for list items. SharePoint users are allowed to reorder items or folders manually for link lists only, which has made the default tool even further less applicable for most users.
SharePoint Document & Item Reordering (Formerly kown as SharePoint List Item Ranking) has considerably extended the native capacity of SharePoint by offering the following invaluable features:
1. Supports manual item rank rearrangement in all types of SharePoint lists.
In any type of lists, by simply clicking the corresponding buttons, SharePoint users can move an item up and down, as well as move it to the top and to the bottom effortlessly. Moreover, when having to deal with numerous list items, users are offered the option to move an item to a specific position directly, which will speed up the process by helping users get rid of unnecessary steps. Therefore, with the application of SharePoint Document & Item Reordering, deliberate planning before item creation is no longer a necessity for users, since they can rearrange those items into any orders they want afterwards with a great ease.
2. Allows users to reorder the list items in each view separately.
Users are able to enable or disable the reordering feature for each view individually. Once the order of items in one view has been changed, the ranks in other views will not be influenced. Therefore, the list items can be differently arranged in each view based on users various requirements and preferences.
3. Enables users to decide which columns of lists to be showed in the reorder page.
With this capability, users can considerably save their time and efforts especially when there are quite many columns existing in a list, yet only one or two of them are needed to be displayed when rearranging the order of list items. For instance, if the reorder is time-oriented and the list items can be reordered solely based on the value of “Start time” column, then users are allowed to hide the other columns, such as “% completed” in the setting page to make the sorting much easier and more accurate.
Therefore, more than just making manual rank rearrangement available in all types of lists, SharePoint Document & Item Reordering also enables SharePoint users to do it in a more effective and efficient way than ever before.
