      Description

      File Picker is missing a Sort by... feature. See this discussion: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=194664

      This is how the File Picker sorts and displays files (as far as I can see):

      Upload a file: you are using the Windows (or Mac etc) file viewer were you can at will sort by Size, Type, Date, etc.
      Private files: files are sorted by Name (no other option available)
      external Repository: files are sorted by Date (no other option available)

      What seems to be missing from the Moodle 2 File Picker is a "Sort by..." feature for Private files and external repositories.

          This has been partially fixed by MDL-31000 and I believe the remaining part of your idea duplicates MDL-14636, which I hope to promote as it seems to be a popular idea (at least it has been duplicated numerous times). I'm going to close this issue. Please contribute to MDL-14636.
