New sort field options when logged in

Postby paul » Thu Aug 16, 2012 11:42 am

We're working on adding more fields to the sort options when you are viewing a set of results.

The fields we are currently adding are:
Classification
Collection Type
Condition Keyword
Controlling Institution
Current Location
Edition
Latest Valuation
Legal or Ownership Status
Other Number
Record Status
Portfolio Title
Series Title
Taxonomic Classification

Let us know if there are any others you wish to add. There is a trade-off in adding the sort fields. The system needs to store an additional copy of the data for sort purposes (converting it to upper case for instance) and it adds extra processing behind the scenes when the records are updated, so we choose which fields to offer sorting on rather than allowing sorting on any field.
