    Hi there,

    Welcome to the Box Community, I'm happy to help!

    By default, a Shared Link to a Box folder presents your content in order of most recently Updated.

    However, you may want your shared links to be automatically sorted by a different column, like Name or Size, when opened. To sort by a different column:

    1. Click your Shared Link
    2. Click the name of the column you want sorted, and you'll notice the shared link in the URL bar changes.

    You can use this new URL as your shared link, and share to others so each time you and they access this link, the content is sorted as you specified.

    This workaround is further described in this article: https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043693754-Customizing-Shared-Link-Content-Ordering on customizing Shared link content ordering.

    Let me know if you have any questions, and I will do my best to help you!
