How can I sort the list of records in my catalogue?

You can adjust the presentation of your item records or search results in various ways, according to the needs of your activity. 
After clicking Catalogue > Items you will land on the item list page. Click on the Sort icon  and select the field on which you want to sort your records:
  1. When record created
  2. Registration
  3. Item Name
  4. Current Location
  5. Condition
Then switch the arrow toggle to sort your records in descending or ascending order.

If you are conducting a location audit, it is most helpful to sort your items by Location for easy reference. If you want to find out the next registration number to use, you may sort by Registration (descending).
