U4-4685 - Default sorting of listview items

Created by Claus Hingebjerg 14 Apr 2014, 09:12:43 Updated by Shannon Deminick 03 May 2016, 09:29:20

When viewing items in list view, they are sorted by "Changed date", oldest first. It makes more sense to list them by create date, newest first. The older the item is, the less likely you'll want to edit it.

Not sure if this is also related to the our.umbraco feature request (https://our.umbraco.org/forum/umbraco-7/using-umbraco-7/56329-Default-sort-position-of-new-items) of having all new content appear at the top of any given folder rather than the bottom. Same goes for media picker. We don't really like using listviews because it takes longer to load plus the persistent "Discard changes" erroneous message (http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-4902#comment=67-27452) when you pick an item from a listview. If there was a way to set Umbraco to list all newest content first, would probably get more thumbs up from other users also.
