Sort files and folders by modified date

Sorting by modified date does not work. It just lists the folders in alphabetical order. This is very frustrating when you have a long list of folders our files.. I want a way to see the most recent folders at the top (like I had in Box before we switched to Dropbox). This works correctly on my Mac but not in the iPadOS version.

Hi @JXL99, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

Currently, on the website and apps, it isn't possible to sort both files and folders by date, since the folders themselves don't have a modification date, only the files.

 

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
