Sort Order - Oldest to Newest, Z-A, etc

Hi there,

quick question: when I sort the order by release date it lists the films from the most recent to the oldest.
Eg: folder with back to the future films, i have BTF 3, BTF2 BTF in this order…
is there any way to sort it from the oldest to the most recent one?

Thank you all.


Not at this time, but I’ll move this to suggestions. :slight_smile:

Currently I can only se options to sort by title and by date added. Please enhance this with ascending and descending options.

I suppose It would be very useful if we get the sorting not only in one way but ascending and descending.
Especially when I sort movies by the release date for example.
I can’t sort them with oldest movies on top of the list and so on…

I hoped it will appear during about a year or two and finally decided to write about it. :slight_smile:


When I view the profile of a certain director or actor, it would be great if the sort by release date function puts their work in ascending order instead (or maybe add an additional option?) so I could go through their filmography chronologically.


Interface wise, there need not be a change. Click on “sort chronologically” and it sorts newest to oldest. Click the same option again and the sort flips to oldest to newest. Click a third time, back to newest first. Easy-peasy.

Certainly a preferable solution to having to manually arrange custom playlists to achieve the desired effect!

I can’t make it with the macOS app right now. When I click it repeatedly it’s just listing the options like Date sorting, Name sorting and so on in a circle. No ascending/descending changes.
I’ll try the same on my Apple TV unit and see.

And I can’t find this option on my Apple TV app either. In the General settings I can’t even see “sort chronologically” and if I choose “by release date” it gives me only from newer to older.

Could you describe more detailed where can I find these settings which I can click twice and get the order changes you mean?

Those options don’t currently exist. I was only suggesting how I hoped Firecore could implement such a feature. Sorry for the confusion.

Ah, I see. Yeah it would be great to get it in that way. :v:

This suggestion was just moved to wishlist. We know wishlists items rarely are elevated to the light of day, so is that an upgrade or downgrade from previous status? Should we be flattered at all that the housekeeping happened?
