Content of shared folder sorted by date?

Explorer | Level 3
I shared a folder from my dropbox with some friends using a link. When they open the link, the contents of that folder are sorted by name, but i want to add more files from time to time which are supposed to appear on top.
They can't seem to be able to change the order of the files themselves, how can i do that?

Hey @Ki_bean, thanks for reaching out to us on the Dropbox Community!

When you send a folder to others via a shared link, its contents will be automatically sorted alphabetically. 

Although there's the option to view their date modified by clicking on the three lines that should appear across from the Name option, there's no current way to select it as a preference. 

I understand how important this is for you though and thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on this with us. 

If there's something else I can do to help, just give me a shout. Thanks!

When I share a link to a folder of photos, the recipients don't have the option to sort by date. The photos are sorted by name and there is no option to click on 'name' and change it to 'date'. Is there anyway to make it so they can sort by date?

Hey @samsile, thanks for nudging us on this thread. 

 

Although this is currently not an option, you can post this as a feature you'd like to see in the future, here, where other like-minded users can comment and upvote. 

 

In the meantime, let me know if you have any other questions - thanks!
