So I have the following snippets of code which contain a matrix field {people} with a nested playa field {section_people}

{!-- Get people sections --}
{exp:stash:set_list name="people_sections" parse_tags="yes"}

{!-- Get related people: --}
{exp:stash:set_list name="people_list" parse_tags="yes" parse_depth="3" trim="yes"}
    {exp:channel:entries channel="people" dynamic="no" entry_id="{exp:playa:child_ids field='people'}" parse="inward" disable="{global:param_disable_default}"}
        [other fields]

{!-- Display: --}
{exp:stash:get_list name="people_sections"}
<section class="team">
    {exp:stash:get_list:nested name="people_list" match="#{section_people}#" against="entry_id"}

What I'd like to accomplish is: keeping the playa entries in a fixed order: 640|643|639

However, when I get the entries using the stash get_list they are returned by entry date: 643|640|639

I see in the stash docs where I can sort by column, but is there a way to used a "fixed" sort order?

In your channel entries tag, use the fixed_order parameter instead of entry_id.
