I want to be able to set how my folder displays (sorting method, list/grid) to my invitees

On screencast.com, when I invite someone to view my folder, the videos don't make any sense unless they watch them in a particular order. Thus, I would like to be able to force a sorting method in which it is displayed when they first access it (they are welcome to change it). Currently, it seems to default to "newest first". This doesn't work for me.

Try naming your videos in a file A1 A2 A3 and B1 B2 etc., this should give you the video file viewing experience you want...

Hi John:
My filenames begin with 01-, 02-, etc., so that is not a problem when the sort method is Title[A-Z]
The problem is when the invitee accesses the page, the default sort method is set to "Newest first", so the display order is a mess, until the user resets the sort method to Title[A-Z]. Get it?
I would like to force Title[A-Z] sorting method on how my folder is displayed to an invitee.
Regards.

Understood. I do not know of a tip to get video to stay in the sequence you want. Perhaps others have a tip to add?

Hi sritcp,

We received this feedback from a number of users. We're currently working on a solution to display folder contents in alphabetical order.

Thanks for reaching out!
