Reorder Experiments and Trials in PEN/Project Warehouse

There are cases where users may want to reorder their Experiments and Trials after they are uploaded to NEES. Currently, there is no way to do this other than downloading your complete file structure in PEN, deleting it in the warehouse, renaming folders then re-uploading the whole folder system again.

We should introduce a method to order experiments similar to how you can order authors. Then, we can remove the “Experiment-#” and just display the titles.

    Hello Tommy,

    regarding the ordering. This option is implemented only in the Project Display and it is only the order of experiments . The actual underlying folders remain unchanged, as well as their system-assigned designations such as experiment or trial if and system-provided name.

    The parallel with authors a good one but the difference is that while with authors we manipulate only metadata (therefore we could also implement ordering of experiments in the Project Display) . If we were to reorder the experiments also in the PEN, we would need to make major changes to the file system and the database.
