Auto Order Lists and API Enhancements - Help!

Anyone know where I can get the instructions on 9/26 release notes to automatically reorder lists and what the API enhancements are?

Looks like some game changer upgrades!

Hi, I found one reference to the order list action:

Hi @DavidSmith 

Have tested it on a randomised list of fruit and vegetables and works superbly. Will definitely help with large list loading where it comes in on a random order.

We have been doing it manually via sorting within the module itself will be great having this more automated and saves having to remember to do sorting for outputs.

@DavidSmith  I posted an example here. My use case was to order a list subset so I had to use some creativity.

One slight wrinkle. Will it be available for end users to run?

We were thinking that it would solve quite a few data loading issues none of which run by model admins but we're now needing to back these out because of this.

Any of you find out about the changes made to APIs? I heard something about chunk sizing but nothing definitive.

Thank you Sir. I was OOO for few days, didn't test it first hand yet.
