For something like default sort order of prepubs (which seems to be the main issue), I expect to address it soon. We are not done with all of the changes related to this area of the site, so there's still plenty of time to address refinements. I don't expect we'll "put it back", but we do appreciate all of the feedback.

There is a case open for improving the sorting of prepubs.

Quick Fix - replace the word "Ships" with a word that means ships but begins with a letter before 'G'  

Now sorts G S U  or  U S G but not S first.  [maybe 'distribution date']  then can sort  D G U

One simple (and common) way would be to internally map "Under contract" to an impossibly late date, e.g. 01-01-2099, and map "Gathering Interest" to an even more impossibly late date, e.g. 31-12-2099.

Perhaps just removing the word Ships and leaving the date would work with no changes to the code.

Big Smile How about "Almost Ready" followed by the proposed ship date?

Sounds good.

Also 8/18/13 sorts before 8/8/13  [date format needs to be yr/mo/da or at least use two digits for month and day  08/08 not 8/8]

How about putting "Ships", "Under Development" and "Gathering Interest" on separate pages and being able to call up each group separately?

A suggestion so radical that it makes better sense than the current arrangement. In fact, I like it Yes Yes Yes Yes

This works well when a user has numerous pre-pub orders (minority?), but is bad for users with relatively few pre-pub orders (majority?).

Collapsible rows are a good compromise if this idea is implemented, but it would be much harder to program.

+1 Yes for more Order tab(s) so "Open Pre-Pubs" & "Community Pricing Bids" & "Order History" morphs to:

"Community Pricing Bids" & "Open Pre-Pubs" & "Ships Soon" & "Order History"

OR

"Community Pricing Bids" & "Gathering Interest" & "Under Development" & "Ships Soon" & "Order History"

Personally would appreciate separate tab for "Ships Soon" since payment will soon be required plus moves soon to Order History.

That is another possibility—have a triangle beside the heading for each group and click on it to reveal / hide the contents of that section, much as is done in TOCs.
