Custom order of items in a gallery

Hi everyone,
I'm struggling with this issue: i want to order my items in a customized way, not ascending or descending, but just in the order that I need... for example, I have to order the phases of a production process, and these (obviously) aren't in alphabetical order...
It is possible? How it can be done?

Thank you for your help!

Hi @marcro97,

You can use the addcolumn function in the item property of the gallery to add numeric values to the items.

For example,

Your items property could be (assuming Production is the datasource)

SortByColumns(AddColumns( Production, "PhaseSortOrder", If(Phase = "PhaseA" , 1, If(Phase = "PhaseB", 2), If(Phase = "Phase3", 3))), "PhaseSortOrder", Ascending)

Please let me know if this helps and mark this reply as the solution. Thanks!

It works perfectly! On your advise, I preferred to add a column in my Sharepoint database which describes the priority of the phase and to patch it as you said.

Thank you a lot!

Perfect, that makes sense! Glad I could help!
