Configure search results order in ArcGIS Open Data

Idea created by cdejacob on Mar 3, 2017

    Per the original discussion at Change default sort order of Open Data site , it would be very useful to be able to control / configure the default sort order of results on ArcGIS Open Data sites.   It defaults to 'Relevance' which, surprisingly, isn't always the most relevant!


    For example, we have federated some other ArcGIS Open Data providers into our site, and it would be nice to have results grouped by provider, and then alphabetically.  It would certainly make the results seem less random for our users.
