No option to sort Library files when there are more than 1,000 files

You really need to add additional ways to filter files in the library. I ran out of space so I need to clear out old files, but the only way to get to old files is to keep hitting "show more" and 10 more rows. I have about 4000 images to go through, so this is not very efficient. Even a sort by old to new option would be helpful.

Hi @LilaS4

 

At this time users with more than 1,000 files in their library do not have the ability to sort their files. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause! The workaround we suggest is to use the advanced search to look for a specific date range if the oldest image upload dates are known.

Hi @KarenM479 it appears you're having this experience because you have more than 1,000 files in your library. Have you tried using the advanced search to look for a specific date range if the oldest image upload dates are known? Being able to sort in a library with over 1,000 files in it is a feature ability we are still collecting feedback on and have merged your post into the larger thread focused on this request.

Hi @pulaski being able to sort by date or any other characteristics in an account with over 1,000 files in their library is a great feature request! In fact we have merged your post into a larger thread where requests are being collected on this. The workaround we suggest in the meantime is to use the advanced search to look for a specific date range if the oldest image upload dates are known.

Please please allow us to review the view in the library to oldest images/documents first to delete. Hitting 'show more' for ten images at a time is very time consuming.

It would be helpful to be able to show images from oldest to newest with the capability of selecting more than one and deleting in groups. We have over 2000 images, most of which are not needed, but it's difficult to delete groups and almost impossible to search for old images. Also, just to be sure, in the new software, we can delete an image from the library and still have it show in the campaign email, correct? I know with the legacy version, if you deleted from the library, it would also delete from all emails. Thanks for your help.

We have several thousand images, and I would like to delete most of them. However, I can't see them from oldest to newest,, and I can't scroll allowing the menubar to remain in sight. These 2 features would sure make managing the library a lot easier. How about putting someone to work on that!

Can you please make an option to "view all" in the photo library? Having to click on "show more" is VERY time consuming. Especially when your photo library is very large. This is not user friendly. Thank you.

It would be nice to be able to sort by oldest first so you can delete old images more easily from the library. Or a better way than having to click on each individual image without deleting all of your current ones.

Please add a sorting feature for libraries with more than 1000 files. I would like to be able to easily identify and delete either large files or the oldest files without having to go back page by page. Thanks.

Another request to add a sort from old to new with larger libraries - I am drowning in old photos I picked up when I assumed this job. Please please please add this feature you can do it when you are adding an image to a template so why not in the library - better yet, allow us to rename and delete images from the library too - now wouldn't that be helpful!!

Has this request been considered further???  The original comment/suggestion was made 16 months ago and Frankie_P from CC said on 4/21/21 (above), "being able to sort by date or any other characteristics in an account with over 1,000 files in their library is a great feature request! In fact we have merged your post into a larger thread where requests are being collected on this."  WELL??????????????????????
