      Description

      One of our professors would like Sakai to have smart ordering rather than strict. When creating Paper 1, he'd like to call it Paper 1 and not Paper 01 so everything will align if he has 10 or more items in the list.

      Here is the write in request we received –

      "Mac OS and, if I’m not mistaken, Windows 7 and up are 'smart' enough to know that the proper sorting for the list below is

      Lesson 1 Introduction
      Lesson 2 Basic Methods
      Lesson 3 Data Collection

      Lesson 10 Analyzing Data
      Lesson 11 Reporting Data

      but Sakai is stuck in the 1990s and thinks the proper sorting order is

      Lesson 1 Introduction
      Lesson 10 Analyzing Data
      Lesson 11 Reporting Data
      Lesson 2 Basic Methods
      Lesson 3 Data Collection

      Which means that we professors also have to live in the Clinton administration and give our lesson numbers leading zeroes for 1–9 to force Sakai to get them in the right order:

      Lesson 01 Introduction
      Lesson 02 Basic Methods

      and so on. Is there any work being done to bring Sakai into line with the recent OSes? I’m talking about Tests & Quizzes, Resources, and Gradebook, by the way."

      *******

      We often receive complaints about ordering and have offered the leading zero method as a workaround, but it is not intuitive. It would be much more user-friendly if the sort order was more human-centered.

      Is this a possibility?
