It would be really beneficial if there was a way to retain the order (using order column for example) of a collection and be able to update it via drag-and-drop on the collection view.
There are many cases when we want to have a certain order of items (regardless of insert order/id/filter/sort options provided in the view), and to be able to retrieve the data using the predefined order later (as seen in the collection view for example)
Using drag and drop would help as it's really tedious to go to a huge collection and pump the order column of each item (for a CMS user) or run a query on the database (for CMS power user)
most common use case, ordering an employee list on a company website (or add a new employee at a specific position)
