Please add a setting so that nested folders will show up first and files will follow afterwards.

Hi there @fallingup79!

 

Would you mind clarifying this a little for me so that we can have a better understanding of the idea you're suggesting?

 

For example, are you referring to sorting on a particular platform (website, desktop app, mobile app)?

 

If it would be helpful, please feel free to send along some screenshots too.

 

Keep me posted - thanks!

Hi @Daphne,

 

Thanks for the follow-up! I'm speaking specifically about iOS in my case. Folders that have both files and more folders within them sort the files first and then the folders. If you have a lot of files, this puts the folders way at the bottom. It would be amazing and time-saving if we could have nested folders sort first above the files.

 

I hope this makes it more clear. My apologies if I'm explaining incorrectly.

 

Have a great day!

I agree 100%. I have no idea why this has not been more of a priority. Anyone who works with files and folders would want this. This should have been a default setting by nature on any platform.
