MetaLocator allows for sorting data in your search results.  By default, search results are ordered by the distance from a user's search.  However, outside the presence of a geographic search term you can control the primary ordering of the results.  When a geographic search is performed results are presented ordered by Distance first.  This assumes the search is not configured to prioritize certain groups of results.

If not otherwise specified, the data is presented in the order in which it was imported into MetaLocator.  This is the default.  To add a level of sorting, click Data Settings, then scroll down to Field Sorting as shown below.

Click Add Sorter to add a sorting level.  Choose a field and a direction.  Add additional sorting levels as needed. Be sure to Save your interface to see the changes.
