    Hello,
    I'm trying to arrange movie order in a series of movies in iTunes. How can I accomplish this? I've been playing with it for a while, and having no luck. Like I have all the Indiana Jones movies but want them in chronological order not by name.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Get Info on the movie and click the Sorting tab.

    Yeah I've tried that not sure what fields I should be populating to get my end result.

    In the Sort Name field you could put "Indiana Jones 1981 Raiders of the Lost Ark" or "Indiana Jones 1984 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", so they would sort together, but be in order of year released.

    Nothing in this field gets displayed so you could just put them as "Indy 1" "Indy 2" etc.. But then it might conflict with something that starts "Indy". I have these movies listed as "Indiana Jones 1" ... "Indiana Jones 4" Not likely for there to be something in-between or conflicting. I did the same with Star Wars and Star Trek.

    I did the same for several series so they would sort properly in Plex.
