Hey! Enjoying Emby, running premiere now as well!  I know this has been brought up before, but it's really a feature I'm missing. The ability to sort a collection manually.

 

I created a Marvel collection and there's a specific watch order. I want to be able to drag and drop that order myself. 

 

That's about the only thing I miss from Plex, in every other way Emby is way better.

 

Any plans to implement this?

I don't think it's possible to do this in Plex,

Movies are only sorted by year and there is no way to sort them. The only way to do this is to create a playlist, this way you will have the possibility to order items like you want

Yes, for a specific playback order, what you want is a playlist instead of a collection.

 

Please let us know if this helps.

 

Thanks.

I can't share a playlist with my users. So it would be great to get a manual sorting option on collections, or be able to share playlists.

 

Thanks!

Isn't there an option to order collections by release date and by sort name?

Maybe use 'sort name' but for each movie add avengers 1, avengers 2, etc in the sort name field.

That will work but would affect sorting of those movies in all contexts which is probably not desired.

Yeah, that's not what I want. So any idea on what would be the best approach here? Be able to share playlists or add manual sorting function to collections would solve this, I'd accept either :)

There is already a feature request about sharing playlists :

Now we just have to wait until it's implemented :)
