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

@Chris_Magnuson I tried to use your PowerShell command (knowing very little about PS), I stringed the command together to look like this: .\bw list items | ConvertFrom-Json | Select-Object -Property Name, RevisionDate | Sort-Object -Property RevisionDate -Descending | Select-Object -First 10

After entering the mater pw, I got a blank Name and RevisionDate, but no entries. Any ideas why? Thank you!

Would love this kind of feature. It would be super helpful in finding passwords that haven’t been changed in a long time.

Vault Sort - Order By

  • When looking at a vault, either personal or shared across organization/family, having the ability to View the vault in various orders will help with the user with password maintenance. The only current sort order, alphabetical, would still be supported and the default view.

Features / Functions

  • Being able to Sort Ascending or Descending by Recently USED will help in weeding out un-used passwords and quickly finding more recently USED.
  • Being able to Sort Ascending or Descending by Recently EDITED will help in fixing recently added records, or finding older records in need of up-keep.

I would add:

It would be beneficial to be able to explicitly see when a record’s password was modified. While it would be helpful to see when any part of a record was modified, being able to see specifically when a password was last changed would be very helpful.

I have voted for this topic and started one of my own regarding password age flags that is very much along these lines that I’d also appreciate votes for!

Feature name

  • Password Age Flag

Feature function

  • What will this feature do differently? Right now, if I’m looking at a list of passwords in the Vault Items, I cannot see when a password was last changed for that item. If I click on an item, I can see when a record was last updated, but it doesn’t seem clear if this was a password change, or if there was some other adjustment to the record.

For this feature, I’d like to be able to see, in the Vault Items list and when in an entry, the current age of that password. I’d also like to sort by a password’s age.

  • What benefits will this feature bring? This will make it easier to identify passwords when passwords were last changed.

  • Remember to add a tag for each client application that will be affected

Related topics + references

  • Are there any related topics that may help explain the need and function of this feature? There is another topic that seems to touch on having the ability to have other sorting methods.

  • Are there any references to this feature or function on other platforms that may be helpful? None that I can cite right now.


The sort feature can’t come soon enough. I’ll be switching to BW the moment it drops. Please, do it soon!

Checking again after a couple of years… and still not implemented. :smiling_face_with_tear:

Essential search for me - and all the data is present… simple query to be added as a link

Try this:
(.\bw list items | ConvertFrom-Json) | Select-Object -Property Name, RevisionDate | Sort-Object -Property RevisionDate -Descending | Select-Object -First 10

Here’s actually what I ended up doing when I found this thread:
(.\bw list items | ConvertFrom-Json) | Select-Object -Property name, type, revisionDate | Sort-Object -Property RevisionDate -Descending | Export-Csv -Path .\output.csv

Added the type (1 = pw, 2 = note, 3 = card, 4 = address/autofill) and piped it out to a CSV.

Here’s a quick and dirty example using the CLI and jq to get entries and sort on revisionDate

bw list items | jq -r '.[] | "\(.name),\(.login.uris[0].uri),\(.revisionDate)" ' | sort -k3 -t, | column -t -s,

Note that the revisionDate is the last time the entry was modified, not necessarily the last time the password was changed.

I was panicking just the other day because I couldn’t find a password I just changed.

If I could make the newest float to the top, I would have found it.

You can make all the excuses you want, but it’s a shame that in the 21st century there can be software that can’t sort items!

OMG, I opted for another password manager years ago because sorting wasn’t implemented. I just came back to Bitwarden and CANNOT believe sorting isn’t in ANY of its platforms - this is nuts. All of the folks impacted by other security flaws are looking for a better option, what they must think when they look at BW?!

I’m sticking around this time but come on !!!


Thanks for the feedback Sam, the team is currently exploring this functionality for the web vault, we will share more information as it becomes available.

Once this has been added to the clients, I will drop 1Password. Tried BW once again last week after a few years and was quite disappointed as this seems like a basic feature.


Yes please!
I just came over from the dark side (LP) and the only thing I miss is the ability to sort my vault entries by most recently used.

that would be an very Good feature on Desktop, Mobile and Web

You can get a “grid version” by exporting your vault as an unencrypted .csv and then opening the file with Excel or Google Sheets

There should be an “All items” button at the very top of the left sidebar, is that what you’re looking for?
