Sorting determines the order in which courses are displayed. The default setting is to order by Due Date, so that students can prioritize their assignments by what is needed next. The other options are to sort by Start Date, End Date, Title, or Custom Order. The Custom Order option means that the order that is set by adding assignments in the Organizer view will stay in place. Date-based options can be sorted in the First to Last or Last to First Directions. Title can be displayed in alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order. Custom Order is sorted by Custom Order.
