Changing order of big CMS collections

Hey guys, generic question here.

I have an ecommerce site with 40+ products. They are ordered using a custom “order” property, from smaller to greater. Every time I add a new product I need to give it a position through the order property, let’s say 15. Now I have to edit all the other products from 15 to 40 to give them a +1 to keep the order. I must be missing something because I find it hard to believe this is the only way to order products. How can I tell my client that it will take them 20min each time they have to add a new product?

Any alternative solution would be very much appreciated!

Yeah, it’s annoying. Two options-

  1. Sequence your range, e.g. 10, 20, 30, to minimize the adjustment impact.
  2. Change to support decimal places so you can insert in-between, e.g. 10.5
