Sort options in search results

Please enable advanced search functions in the web ui and also enable the ability to manipulate search results e.g. sort by date and change column width so that all of a file name can be read.

Hi Jon,

Your request is duly noted and a feature request has already been added to the Product Management queue. Although there is no ETA on its implementation, the Product team surely has it noted.

We thank you for your valueable feedback. This is what will make Egnyte improve as a product.




Over a year has passed since Jon's imminently reasonable request.  Any status updates?  Being able to see filenames (duh)and sorting by date (duh) should not be that tough to add.  Without them, Egnyte is not a usable alternative to Windows Explorer, IMHO.

Hi Kameron,

I understand your point here. However there are reason as to why this is still not worked upon.

We don't allow sort on any of our interfaces for a number of reasons:

  • Search would be very slow if we had to wait to get all of the results
  • Search is "fuzzy" and returns close matches to terms that are not exact matches. If you sorted on a field other than the rank, you might get a lot of junk results at the top

If there are any major changes happening to Egnyte in the future, this will be re-visited. We thank you for your suggestions and co-operation.
