[Solved] Importing delta files in proper order in Marketing Cloud

andrewb Asks: Importing delta files in proper order in Marketing Cloud
User wants to be able to import daily delta files with a timestamp, i.e. using the %%Year%%%Month%%%%Day%% wildcard on the filenames, which is simple. However, in instances where upstream file generation processes happen to fail or get delayed, they may upload multiple files from prior days all at once. In such instances they want an Automation to automatically process these delta files in order, oldest files first. Is this possible to setup without a custom API solution? In my experience Import activities will always grab the newest file first by default, which would result in processing the files backwards (which risks overwriting new data with old).
