      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      The feature documented at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Changing+the+Sequential+Order+of+Pages?focusedCommentId=420184815&=#ChangingtheSequentialOrderofPages-Changingthepageordertoalphabetical is great, but it would be truly wonderful if reverse-sort were an option, particularly to support the Meeting Notes blueprint. Out-of-the-box use of Meeting Notes will produce a page tree that looks like this:

      • Meeting Notes
        • 2013-10-25 Meeting Notes
        • 2013-10-26 Meeting Notes
        • 2013-10-27 Meeting Notes

      It's pretty clear imho that it's much more desirable to keep the latest meeting notes on top, as in:

      • Meeting Notes
        • 2013-10-27 Meeting Notes
        • 2013-10-26 Meeting Notes
        • 2013-10-25 Meeting Notes

      But there is not a nice mechanism for making this happen without resorting to manual re-ordering. Imposing a simple reverse-alphabetical sort on the Meeting Notes child pages would do it (assuming an appropriate naming convention were used - like the one that the out-of-the-box Meeting Notes blueprint suggests).
