    Sort option also requested from most recently viewed to oldest in view ordering. Perhaps even tagging last view for the users.

    I have another request for viewing spaces and process in the library in some additional custom-defined manner and also the activity numbering. The word activity should be removed from the ticket it was an oversight. My understanding of this customers request is this is simply a request for process sorting options at the lowest level and where it maintains the users sort option until a user should manual sort it differently. Example: If a user has 100 processes on their favorite screen. They would like sort options of numbering, alpha/numeric title, date, etc The option chosen on any view of All, Favorites and Hierarchical view would be maintain unless manually changed by the user. Such a sort option might impact both spaces and processes also depending on the view and implementation. If the impact does impact everthing it would then make sense to separate the sort option between them. Sort Processes only, Sort Space only or Sort All. Let me know if you have more questions on the topic.
