To include a sorting control with a result list, you must do the following:

1. Establish the desired metadata columns as managed properties in SharePoint (see “Establishing Custom Properties in SharePoint”).

2. Configure the relevant managed properties as sorting properties for Search & Preview (see “The Sorting Properties Page”).

3. For each relevant result page, place an Search & Preview Search Summary Web Part that is configured with sorting enabled and with an XSLT template designed to implement a sorting control. See “Search & Preview Search Summary Web Part” for details about how to make these settings.
