Allow sorting of itemized set members similarly to logical set results.
In Manage Sets, enable sorting the members of itemized record sets by title, creator, and publication date, similar to the criteria available for sorting results of logical sets. Currently our only option for sorting the members of an itemized set is by exporting to Excel and manipulating the resulting spreadsheet, which doesn't allow for clean sorting by the same criteria.

This would be so helpful. It's also incredibly frustrating that itemized sets appear to have no rhyme or reason in the way they sort, and the order of set members changes at random when you leave the set and come back, or even just add or remove members from the set.

Once again, basic functionality that should be included in Alma OTB, but isn't. Instead we have to submit ideas to develop functionality that should have been included from the beginning.

YES! This is a no-brainer. We have to have some options available to sort the "members" of an itemized set. Title, call number, location, and status are just a few of the options that could be extremely helpful. The members of a set aren't even in the same order as they were on the file used to create the set. This makes it hard to find records!
I would also like the ability to sort sets by location within a library.
