You can decide how posts will be sorted on your padlet. By default, posts are sorted manually with new posts added first. You are also able to sort automatically by date published, reaction score, alphabetically, and randomly.
Accessing the sorting options
- Select the settings cog (⚙️) on your padlet's action bar.
- Scroll down to the Layout section.
- Select Sort.
- Select your desired sorting option.
How sorting works
When you sort manually, you can drag and drop posts wherever you want. You only determine where new posts show up, either at the beginning or end of your padlet.
When you use any of the other sorting options, your posts will be sorted automatically by the chosen criteria. You will not be able to rearrange posts on a padlet sorted by date published, reaction score, alphabetically, or randomly.
When you sort manually, added posts will appear at the beginning or end of your padlet depending on which setting you choose. You will then be able to drag and drop posts to rearrange them however you want.
Sorting by reaction score
If you have reactions enabled, you can sort your posts by reaction score.
See how to turn on reactions here.
Sorting by date published
Posts will be sorted in the order that they were posted.
This setting will sort posts alphabetically by the subject of the post. If two posts have the same text in the subject, the tie will be broken by the date published. The older post will always come first. If a post has no text, it will be sorted to the end of the padlet.
Sorting randomly will rearrange your posts randomly every time the page refreshes.
