How to change the order of the icons on the dashboard

By default when you add new activities to the Activities tab, they will be shown in the published application in the order they've been added to the list. This is because each item has a default position of 100. However, you can easily organize your activity icons however you like. Lower numbers are displayed first. For example, if you have 3 activities and number them 100, 200 and 300 - the activity with the 100 will appear listed first.

To set the order of your activity icons, select 'Edit' from the activity's Action drop-down list, or click on the activity name. Then, you should see a 'Position' field under Settings that you can edit. Activities are ordered from lowest to highest numbers, so setting the position to '5' will cause it to be shown ahead of an activity with a position value of 100.

Tip: Using 3 digit numbers like 100, 200 and 300 gives you the flexibility to add future activities between your existing activities without shuffling them all around. For example, you can add an activity number 250 that will appear between 200 and 300.

After you've saved the changes by clicking on the 'Save Changes' button, you should see the desired order in the list as seen below.
