Modification time filter

I am using /file/list_folder api to retrieve files and folder details.
I noticed that all data are in acending order .
Is there any way to get files/folders after perticular modification date or way to change sorting order to descending so that we can skip remaining files after perticular time while retrieving.

No, Dropbox doesn't offer a way to specify a particular order or otherwise request only items modified after a certain date from /2/files/list_folder[/continue], but I'll pass these along as feature requests as well. I can't promise if/when they'd be implemented though.

Any update on this,
It's been 1 year and we are facing lots of issues.
Even though we need only the last 1 month files, we need to get all files for all the users in the domain which was not required and taking more time and more API hits.

No, I don't have an update on this feature request.
