Sort items by date of modification, addition, last use, etc

+1. This would make maintaining and using the vault MUCH easier. I hesitate to complete my migration to BW without this fundamental feature.
I don’t even see a way to view the last modified date on items in the browser extension. Am I missing something?

Feature name:
“Newly Added” or “Newly Added Items”

Feature Function:

  • Shows the user newly added credentials, notes, cards, whatever it may be.
  • The duration of newly added items can be set in settings. For example, 24h, 7day duration etc…

Sometimes when I add a new login, I forget to double check the auto URL link. This leads to the added item being lost in my vault.

If there was a “Newly Added” list, that would make it much easier for me to find and edit the credentials.

I was hoping you could add the ability to sort by the following on top of the current “sort by Name”:
Sort by Category
Sort by Date Created
Sort by Date Modified
Sort by Vault

The reason I am asking for this feature is that recently I created a new password for an obscure training subscription that I only needed to use once. The problem I had was that I forgot the name of the website where I had put in my card details to gain access to the training AND I didnt want to use this company after realising their product was rubbish. They gave 1 month free to test their product but as I didnt like it I forgot about it until now when the charges for the subscription was going to kick in. I then had to frantically go through all the objects in my vault searching for keywords to try and figure out what this training subscription was. I eventually found it BUT this could’ve been a lot easier if we had the ability to “sort by date created” or “sort by date modified”. I hope you understand what I mean by this.

I’m surprised so basic a feature doesn’t already exist - the data are there so it should be simple to implement. I also found it weird when I imported my 1Password vault export that it didn’t preserve the date created / updated times on import into Bitwarden that were included in that export file.

May I add another sort feature I used to like in 1Password was “Sort by Password Strength” - so I could prioritise which account passwords to refresh with stronger ones.

It’s a database, surely it cant be difficult to provide a sort facility?
Please, as a 1Password convert for all the cited reasons, I really do miss this, and judging by the thread, so do lots of others.
Surely it cant take major recoding as all the info is there?

Hi @tonyt - there is some great work going on here with respect to this request :slight_smile:

Just wanted to share some progress on this since I know a lot of you want this feature.



Add me to the list of people that really want this. And make sure it includes sorting by the date last used - I want to see which logins haven’t been used in a long time.

I am glad I found this request. I would like to add to this:

Sorting by NAME of the entry. Right now the searched results are mixed up by last used or most used order. I would like to be able to sort the results the same way as Lastpass. If I have several Google logins, where I call them A1 Google, A2 Google, B1 Google and B2 Google, then searching for Google should return the results in this order, and not in mixed up order which is by the last date used or most used, whichever applies in bitwarden.

I posted about it in detail also here:


I’d really love to see this feature. The “last modified” category would be particularly helpful.

Would it be possible to include “last use” and “last modified”?
Because I have now over 700 accounts and I am pretty sure some companys doesn’t even exist anymore. It would help me a lot if Bitwarden shows me that I havn’t use an entry for 1 or 2 years. So I know that this entry is old.
Thanks for implementing this. :slight_smile:


To add to this feature request:

Can we set the default sort to be by last used, or most used? Or a combination of the 2.

Last used: if I have a todo inbox on my desk, the item I put in there last is the most likely item I will use next

Most used: I might use a bunch of random websites occasionally, but I will still come back to the most used items.


This is really odd as I thought this was already a feature in the browser extension.

Usually, my last used logins would show up at the top, but since the recent update (Chrome Extension) it doesn’t seem to be doing that and I can’t find the option.
I have about 80 email logins so I’ve definitely noticed a change trying to get into my mail.

I just needed this feature and I’m sad it doesn’t exist.

Agreed +1 specifically for recent changes…

Agree +1 . …also in special: the “Created” column in the admin panel/page . To see faster the last registered/created users… (that we have to put/invite in our “organisation”…) …

just made an account to express my frustration at finding a 4 year old thread of people being frustrated by this. Please :frowning: +1

why? until from 2018 to 2022 ,no Sort items by date?

Still waiting :sweat_smile:

Feature name

  • Smart password filter, Bitwarden with minimal calendar

Feature function

  • What will this feature do differently?
    It would be interesting to filter passwords by time, if you have a lot of passwords it would be difficult to know which passwords are newer and which passwords are old.
  • What benefits will this feature bring?
    For example, if you use Bitwarden as a password manager to access your social networks, it would be interesting to know which social networks you access most often to make it easier to find the password on that specific social network.
