Manually Sorting Widgets

Many of the widgets have the option to sort in various ways, i.e alphabetically, oldest to newest, etc. Most of these views have the ability to select the sort order and save. Manual sorting is a great option if you have a specific order you would like widget content items to be listed but they don't follow any of the standard sorting options. 

Below are instructions of how to manually sort specific widget items. The enhanced card widget is used for the example but these instructions can be applied to any widget with the manual sorting option. 

How to:

1. In your widget, click the option to Edit. The Content tab is where you will select what items should be ordered. Choose the option to pick individual widget items and hit "Select".
