Hello, 

Is there a way to automatically alternate articles based on metadata or sort by date? 

Thank you,

Hi Melizza,

You have to explicitly assign the order of articles within a collection by ordering them in the portal. There's no automatic method to order them.

Am I right in guessing that the number of articles and/or collections in most of your clients' apps don't support the need for this feature and that there is no desire to implement this feature in the near or distant future?

Hi Davd,

We actually have a bunch of ideas around how to automatically create collections based on queries, and automatically ordering them, to deal with large numbers of articles. It’s on our wish list, but not something that’s likely to get tackled in the near future.
