How to search by date?

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

I am trying to search for a file, but there are multiples of similar files. Is there a way I can search by date updated? Or even put all of my files in "date updated" order? Thanks

I would like to know the answer to this question. I'd like to find all the photos from before a certain date, no matter what folder they are in.

I'm having the same issue whereby I can only do a fuzzy search in the web app. I would like to do something like: 2011/11 or "2014-11" but it will still match file names like: Picture_2014_04_having-fun-at-11-pm.jpg

This question has been around for over a year and still no answer from the dropbox team? Next to the fact that searching on files dates would be a very useful function, I'm disappointed on the total lack of support/documentation on searching dropbox files or folders.

umm guys, there is a tiny icon on the left, "event" icon, maybe as useful as "search by date"

The event icon only goes back one year. I'm looking for something that is almost 2 years old. Very frustrating. I know I can do this search in Windows on my home computer, but I want to be able to do it from other locations.
