Thanks for the perfect replies, Will. In that case, using a touch of CSS to hide the element is a perfect, quick work around.
Too, mgarub, you can place that css into the settings of the module or the main page/site settings to set .hc-sort to display:none that way you're not making any semi-permanent edits to the viewset for something as simple as this.
For anyone else that needs a customized BulkOrderList, we have built one with XMod Pro that has a few benefits over the HC Bulk Order List... mainly being the speed of the data query and lookup of results when you have more than a thousand product records. There's direct speed improvements to the lookup, and then the ajax filter which allows users to search/filter is lightning fast as well.
If anyone needs it for their projects, just reach out
