Sort search results

Hi, I'd like to suggest a new feature - the ability to sort search results...by name, date, type...

Hi,

The new Collaborative UI has the ability to sort files and folders by date.  Please click on the arrow next to Date modified to sort by ascending or descending date.  If a filename is too long to be displayed in the default panel view, you have two options.  Either hover over the entry and read the tooltip that will display the full name.  Otherwise, please reduce the size of the activity stream or file explorer panels.

Thanks.

Really?  You have these big file storage products and you allow us to search for documents but...then there's no way to sort the results?  I just did a query that brought back over 400 results.  Now I have to go through all of them to find the document I want?

This is such a simple and obvious feature I'm not sure I even know how to react. It should have been in the 1.0 version!

Hi George,

I can see how that would be frustrating. Right now, we don't have any immediate plans to upgrade the search feature. I would recommend trying to add more terms to your search query to yield a narrower range of results.

Let me ask you this: when you search for files, and get a large number of results back, how would you want to be able to narrow the results down? For example, would you want to be able to sort by date created or author?

Thanks for your business,

Trey

I know this is an old topic but I am experiencing it now as well. To answer the question how sorting could simplify things; I could sort it based on the the date. My company has thousands of quotes we generate and sometimes several dozen for the same project. Sorting would allow me to find the latest one quickly.

How is this not already implemented?!? I'm searching for part of a filename and need to know the latest revision. No sort by date? How are the results even sorted? Incredibly frustrating this isn't an option.

Please add this ability to sort results particularly by date.  Please also enable layout changes in the search results e.g. change the width of the filename column.

Hello Cara,  How do I access this collaborative UI?  I can sort normal folder contents by date, but I still cannot sort search results by date.

Thanks for your assistance.
