Logic of collection sorting


We're looking at utilising collections to sort between different product documents. We'd like to sort them in the dashboard filter by popularity. In the collection page, there's no mechanism to sort so we deleted them all and remade them in order. We observe the following behaviour:

  • Continuously adding one collection after each other lists them in order (e.g. A, B, C, D, E)
  • On a seemingly random event, after adding one the last addition is randomly placed in the list and the list is almost completely reordered. (Expected: A, B, C, D, E, F) (Actual: A, D, F, E, B)

the naming of the collection id or collection label doesn't appear to affect this, though we're unsure. Is there a logic behind the seemingly random event that causes this reorder?

Hi Tom,

Welcome to the Prismic community.
I don't think that collections are meant to be ordered, I will check with our dev team and get back to you.
