I'm trying to sort my wishlist by hold, since anything not on auto-request is on hold while I am on vacation.  (Because I have an excess of credits, I'm on vacation until I use some of them.)

Anyway, sorting by hold does not seem to put all the items on hold at either the beginning or the end of the sorted wishlist.  Can anyone else get this to work?  Or am I misinterpreting something?

Mine worked fine. Sort by hold puts all my held books at the front. there is no order or alphabetizing and I can't make them go to the end but they are all at the front.

I think Vacation Hold and manual Hold work differently.

I think Emily nailed it.  Sorting by "hold" puts the books that are on individual hold on your Wish List at the front -- these books will show with a pink/red background.  There isn't a way to sort by which books are on auto-request and which are not, which I think is what you want, but the visuals help -- green background is auto-request, white background is not.
