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.

I would REALLY like to see ways to sort and organize the library easier! We use one account in our company, but our photo library is currently full. I'm trying to delete old photos that my center has uploaded, but it only lets me go back so far, so there's no way to switch the view to date added or move to the next page of photos to search through. Can this please be an update as soon as possible??

Thank you for the feedback.


Are you unable to sort by date added?  In the library you should be able to click date added to view the oldest to newest.  Let us know if you are still having trouble and we can have someone reach out to help!

Need help with sorting by date. It doesn't work like it does in other programs.

I agree! Sorting photos and deleting is painfully slow. Wish I could stay on the same page instead of being sent back to the beginning of my library after an edit or deletion. Ugh! I don't have time for this!

Hi @KimberlyP what filter options would you like to see in your Library? How does sorting images and documents into folders not fit your needs?

I totally agree! I was trying to delete the older images from the library, and I have 2000 images in the library!  I need to be able to do some sorting!!  Reverse chronological order would really help.

Hi @KayR16. You can sort images by clicking on the Date Added header in order to see older uploaded images. Does this help with sorting your images?

Same problem and the Date Added is non-responsive, so cannot sort:

Hi @cityofmiramar having the ability to sort files and images by date or size, in accounts with over 1,000 files is a feature request we are collecting feedback on. Have you tried using the advanced search in your Library to look for a specific date range?

Yes, but it is also does not allow for sort. If I sort for items in date range of 01/01/2017 - 12/31/2017, there is no ability to then sort those items. If the items are large quantity, I have to again drill down to a smaller range.

PLEASE allow the columns in the library to be sorted by size. I am about to cancel my subscription due to this tiny little glitch. MANY users have written about it, but no response. As someone who runs a large organization, it is a waste of time to have to go through each photo to look at its size to delete enough pics to get under the storage limit. I have close to 11,000 photos.  Why is ConstantContact not more responsive to user needs?  It's a great program, but this non-response to dozens of user requests makes me want to seek other options.

No way to sort by oldest images to delete that way. Gotta seriously click show more 100 times?

It is very frustrating that you can't look at the items in your library oldest to new or enter a timeline where the most recent don't have to be at the top. It takes an extremely long time to get to the oldest items. You can't even say "show all", you have to literally click "show more" over and over and over and over to get to the oldest items.

Very annoying that image files can't be sorted by date or other characteristics.
