Over the years, several of Basis Technologies’ customers requested for there to be an easier way of manually sequencing transports to override the default ActiveControl calculation.
The main use case cited for this requirement was mainly around larger SAP projects involving hundreds of transports. Often the transports were released in the wrong order by the Development and Functional teams, and the only solution to this was to either manually hard-code lots of transport dependencies or to make use of a custom field on a Transport Form to drive the import sequence.
Within the Global View, it is possible for authorised uses to manually re-sequence Transport Forms. This Manual Sequencing is performed via the Manual Resequence button in an Import Queue.

There is no specific configuration required for customers wanting to use Manual Sequencing capability, however customers not wanting to use this new capability can hide the button from the Import Queue screen via Feature Deactivation
