How do I reorder files or folders within Resources?

Updated on

Anyone with access to view Resources sees the reordered items in the desired order. If an instructor wants students to go directly to Resources to locate content items, this feature allows the items to be placed in a specific order. Or if you have used the Make a Web Content Link option to place a Resources folder into the Tool Menu, the reorder feature controls the placement of items on that page as viewed by site participants.

The process is the same for reordering both files and folders. However, items must be within the same parent folder in order to be reordered at one time.

Go to Resources.

Select the Resources tool from the site Tool Menu.

Select Actions, and then select Reorder.

In the parent folder, from the Actions dropdown menu, select Reorder. This displays the Reordering page.

Reorder items and Save.

Drag and drop the items into the desired order, then select Save.

View reordered items.

The reordered items will appear in the Resources list.
