The following steps walk through how to set the default Property List sort order.

In your Rentec Direct account: 

  1. Click on Settings
  2. Under Program, click on Program Defaults
  3. Under General Preferences use the Property List Sorting drop-down to choose Manual or Automatic:

    1. When set to Automatic, the property display order is done alphabetically, by Nickname.
    2. When set to Manual, the property display order is done in alphanumeric order numbers entered into the Nickname, such as 123 Highland Street. If the property name contains numbers, then these numbers become the default sort value.

In your Rentec Direct account:
