Alphabetical order of multiple events

Postby michaelshorttsmith » Wed Nov 04, 2015 12:57 am

How can I rearrange the order of multiple events on a day? Once entered they automatically revert to alphabetical order, but I'd like to be able to list them in a chosen order.

Events sort primarily by start time. Only events that start at the same time are sub-sorted by alphabetical order. There is no way to change that. You can suggest that ability by using the Feedback link on any page (including at the bottom of the calendar).

But personally, I wouldn't want that change. It would add complexity to the UI (making it harder to use) with only minor advantage.

Creative event naming, if you really want to display something first.

Example 1

Calendar Inputs Due
Elders Quorum Fireside

Example 2

An Elders Quorum Fireside
Calendar Inputs Due

Again, though, usually not worth the trouble.
