Sort all items in types based on name, date created, last modified/used and more

Feature name:

  • Sort items based on criteria

Feature Description

  • From feature request Sort items by date of modification, addition, last use, etc
  • Sort all items in a type based on different criteria like alphabetical order, folder name, date created, last modified/created and maybe has verification code.
  • Sorting will either be a local sort (different sort for different types, and changeable quickly) or global sort in the settings affecting all types. This would cut down on UI changes and speed up the process. Input here is appreciated.
  • Sorting based on several criteria at the same time is not planned.

Clients / Repos Affected:

  • Web
  • Browser
  • Mobile
  • Desktop

Timeline to completion (estimate):

ETA: Q4/2021

Any input? @tgreer @kspearrin

Thanks, @fredrikburmester! This would be great to have. We do have some UI changes coming in the web vault, but the other clients should be good to go for now.

I’d say mocks/screenshots of the UI would be good to work through first :rocket:

Here are two quick mockups of the UI if we were to implement a global sort. This could be split into several sort settings for different types as well.

We need to decide:

  • One global sort for all types or separate sort settings based on the type?
  • The explaining text underneath.
  • Location of the setting(s).

Hi @fredrikburmester, I’ve sent you a message to coordinate this work.

I’ve been working a bit on this and submitted a draft pull request for web. This feature includes sorting the login items (ciphers) by name, last edited and owner (organization). Any comments are much appreciated!
