Is it possible to sort my starred files alphabetically?

Is it possible to sort my starred files alphabetically?

Can't find the option, they appear to be sorted by date of starring (by default).  Any way to alpha sort them?

Hey @buddyboy101, currently, there isn’t a way to manually sort starred files, but I’d be more than happy to pass your thought on this to the dev team for future consideration. 
 
Let me know if you have any other comments you’d like me to forward or any questions. Cheers!

Hi @Lusil, thank you for your help.  Yes, I would appreciate you sending this to the developers to implement.  It seems like a basic feature that would definitely make the starred files more usable!

In addition to sorting starred files, please make the ability to "Star" a file to users who are not on your team or not logged into Dropbox.  For example, I'm a photographer and I want the client to pick their favorite photos.  

They "Star" their favorites, I sort by star (hopefully that feature will arrive soon) and then I edit and deliver what they choose.  

Hopefully we can see that option soon, please?!?!!!

Hey @Imageten , I’ve added your comments on this for our dev team to review as well. 
 
In general, the dev team is constantly working on implementing additional improvements, so I’m afraid we don’t have a timeline to share yet. 
 
I’ve also moved your post to the Share an Idea section of the Community, so if you have any other feedback for us, please let us know!
 
In the meantime, have a wonderful day ahead! :grin:

I see this is an old issue going back to January 2019.

 

I have been trying unsuccessfully to sort my starred folders.

 

Just seems such a basic thing to be able to do?

 

Come on Dropbox team please find a solution to this long outstanding issue

Make it possible to alphabetize starred widgets in the left hand side column;  if it's possible in Safari, why isn't it possible in Dropbox?

I’d like to add my vote to this. It seems odd that we can’t sort the folders alphabetically…or in any way actually.  Having to scroll through all my starred folders takes too much time.  It makes the starred section kind of useless.
