Yay, it's back! We can again resort our Reminder List by Availability! The PBS team must have listened to you guys in the other post. I love this feature.

Just noticed it & came here to post!!!

 

HUZZAH!!!

 

The only problem is that it gives you the book with the most available first rather than title of available books, then titles of unavailable books..

but this will work for me!!

YEAH!!


I'm so glad that's back. So much easier when I can sort them the way I want to get them.

Glad it's back too!  I really wish it would go back to the sort features from earlier, so that all the available books are first, sorted alphabetically, then the rest alphabetically, but I can live with this.

I'm confused.  I had before it sorted by author, that way I can look up a book by a certain author.

I just went to check it after adding a couple of books and it is sorted by title.

I clicked on resort by author, and it stayed the same, by title in alphabetical order.

Half the time I can't remember the title of a book, but can remember who wrote it. 

What gives?

Change the "Order by" drop down to Descending and you'll see the unavailable books first.

I notice a new ability to sort by availability, but it's not exactly the alphabetical listing of available books we used to have as default.  Maybe those old links to do that work again.


eta: nope, they don't :/

JimiJam, that's the first thing I tried, also!  I would like to be able to sort them the old way, but this way is helpful since we are unable to do that.

At least we can still bunch the available titles together.  I'm not sure how I managed to do it but my reminder list is about 800 titles long, with a majority being unavailable.  I'll take anything over skipping passed zero after zero lol.

eta: it's always a work in progress here, so who knows how long it will stay any one way.  So long as they're working to improve the Swap experience, I'm more than happy to go along for the ride.  I still get my books, that's good enough for me lol
