Movie files are not in correct order because they are getting listed alphabetically. How do I fix?

If you have a movie series that is pulling Metadata and it puts that series in Alphabetical order even though it is not in the correct order....how do you repair this?

    @ckunkel One option is to set the title sort field to something like name_of_series number_of place_in_series so 'Batman 01' for example.

    Annoyingly from my point of view plex tried to fix this for the movie display page by showing the collection in date order which works some of the time but not always e.g Star Wars.

    I agree with setting the SORT field to something like STARWARS1, STARWARS2, etc. Worked like a charm for me.
