Sorting items in Team Content and My Content - folders before reports

Sort items (folders, reports) in the same way like in Cognos 10 - folders first and than reports.

    This does not exist in 11.0.13 - does it exist in future versions?  You can filter for folders or reports, but not sort as described above which causes extensive scrolling to get to the area you need to find.

    Can you please clarify where this already exists? I am not aware of any way to custom sort folder content in C11

    Thank you

    This should be a sort option on a per-user basis.  It should be a setting in the user preferences.

    This is critical for our users - we  have hundreds of reports in the same root as some folders and searching for the folders it very tedious.  Navigation in CA 11 is much more difficult than in C10
