    Do something following the date, time...

    Let's say :

    I file the document alphabetically. (means by following the first alphabet)

    Then, my questions are :

    I file the document ???. (means by following the document dated)

    I file the document ???. (means by following the time the case happened)

    I file the document ???. (means by following the importance/seriousness)

    I will sort out the case ???. (means by following the gender)


    Thanks / ju

    Then, my questions are :

    I file the document by date. (means by following the document dated)

    I file the document chronologically. (means by following the time the case happened)

    I file the document by priority or by urgency. (means by following the importance/seriousness)

    I will sort out the case ???. (means by following the gender) I don't get this one. By following whose gender?
