Sort content

The following types of content can be temporarily sorted within the Content Repository:

  • Individual questions
  • Activities within a unit

Sorting content helps you to locate a specific question or activity more quickly in the Content Repository without affecting how your content is already organized.

NOTE: Sorting content to rearrange its order in the Content Repository is not maintained after switching to a new Content Repository pane and does not affect the order in which content appears elsewhere in Möbius. To maintain the changes you have made to how your content is listed in the Content Repository and in other locations in the platform, check out Reorganize content.
