Is there a way to change the default sort of files/folders in AEM Assets? As in, sort folders/files A-Z by default without having to List View>Title.

Hi,

if you are using an ordered folder, the default sorting after upload your assets is the alphabetical sorting.

Unfortunately the root of the DAM "/content/dam" is not an ordered folder so the only way that you can use to have sorted assets without customize the interface is to create your ordered folder under the root.

Thanks,

Antonio

This is the starting point for you to debug further - /libs/dam/gui/coral/components/admin/contentrenderer/card/asset  - asset.jsp and assetviewer.jsp

Overlay and customize per your requirements.

List View in the TOUCH UI environment is how you sort the Asset view. You click the Column header:

Thanks for the reply. I am aware of the sorting feature in List View. This requires that a user manually sort every time he opens the folder.

I was referring to setting a default. In other words, a way to select the default sorting behavior for files/folders across the entire DAM. Does such a thing exist?
