Sort feature content in the order you want it to appear to attendees in the Event App.

As you build your Event App on the Webex Events platform, our list-based features, like the Sponsors or Web List feature, let you add relevant items that you can arrange in any order you want. When users open your app, the feature items appear in the sequence you've specified.

This article shows how to sort your feature content. Read the steps below, or follow along with this video for instructions. 👇

💡 Keep in mind, the video below shows an older version of our platform, but the process it describes is still accurate.

Drag and drop feature content

In your Event navigation bar under ‘Event App’, click Features, then click the feature you'd like to edit. This opens the feature's page.

When there's more than one item in a feature, a two-line icon appears next to the Settings () icon. Click and hold the six-dot cluster and drag the item to reorder it.

That's it! The platform automatically saves any changes to the item order, and those changes are immediately visible to attendees using your Event App.

Import feature content

💡 Keep in mind, importing isn't available for the Documents feature.

If there are too many items to sort manually, we recommend ordering them in a spreadsheet and then importing them. The order of items in the spreadsheet is the order they'll appear on the Mobile App and web experience.

If you've already added items, simply export them, reorder them in the spreadsheet, and then re-import them. Read our Exporting and Importing Data in Webex Events article for complete instructions.

💡 Keep in mind, if you want to sort a list of people by last name, consider splitting the Name column into two columns (First Name, Last Name). Make sure you merge those columns back into the single Name column when you're done sorting. Refer to these articles about distributing cell content and merging multiple cells for more information.
