Organizing/Sorting Workspaces

Hello Fellow Smartsheet Community Members,


I am wondering if anyone knows if it possible to sort items in a workspace by the item type.


I have a workspace that has a mixture of sheets and reports. Ideally, I would like a way to group all the reports together and all of the sheets together. An anaology is clicking the 'Type' column heading if you're viewing the contents of a folder in Microsoft Windows.


It can probably be done by nesting folders within the workspace but I think this is a cumbersome solution.


Has anyone encoutered a situation like this before and what did you do to solve it?

    I've tried prioritizing items by adding an underscore "_" to the front of the object.

    Someone usually comes around and adds a second underscore and then the battle begins.


    I have put Report and Templates into sub-folders. That sometimes works.


    You could do something programmers sometimes do and name your sheet "sh_something" and your reports "r_something" and so on.


    I try (insert Yoda quote here) to limit the amount of scrolling I need to do, so make folders when I have too many objects at the current level.


    But I haven't considered sorting.

    Doesn't appear to be able to group Workspaces into a Folder.

    For Workspaces,  have resorted to adding a group type for each Workspace name, then all the same type of Workspaces are at least together in the list.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.
