Where is the reverse alphabetical sorting for page tree?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Changing the Sequential Order of Pages

We have a page tree that contains at minimum one page for each week; 20160101, etc. The alpha sorting puts the highest date on the bottom, but we'd like it to be the highest date at the top (reverse alpha sorting).

In most cases, standard alphabetical sorting works (like an index, 1, 2, 3, etc), but in this case, those dates are reference records and we utilize the newest pages more than the oldest. Having to scroll every page refresh is annoying at best.

The workaround we have in place is to edit the parent page in the tree and then use either the Children Display macro or the UI Children macro and then we can click the parent page, and the contents of the parent page will display all of the children pages in reverse alphabetical order.

Where this breaks down is when we need actual data on the parent page instead of just a listing of all child pages.

Is there a way to sort the page tree in reverse alphabetical order? Thanks!

Looks like the Page Tree Macro in version 6 takes care of this.
