How can I sort files in the mobile app?

Level 3

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to sort files by date on my android phone? I've had Dropbox for years and it has never worked when I have chosen this option. Seems like it would be a useful feature.
Thank you in advance.

Hey there ,
 
You can sort your files by date on your Android device by going to the Files tab (from the menu icon in the top left) and then tapping the column header above the file display to the left. 
 
Please let me know if you’re having issues with this not working on your device so we can look into this further. Any screenshots (excluding any personal info) that you think are relevant will be appreciated.
 
Hope this helps - Thanks!

Thanks Daphne. I've tried this with at least two android phones and, as I said, it has never worked.

Hey again @PatrickDodds,
 
In that case, could you please elaborate on where the issue arises, for example you can’t see the option to sort? Or perhaps clicking the sort option doesn’t result in any change? I’ll need some more info to be able to assist with this. 
 
Let me know - Thanks!
