Please just add the possibility to sort files by date added. This is basic and I don't know why is not active. I need to go to finder to find files that have no metatags, whose I just remember when I added.

OK, that doesn't entirely make sense for Bridge - because you don't add files to Bridge, so there is no "date added".

All you have are the date stamps on the file, and metadata from other apps inside the file.

And why it doesn't get the Time Added to the place where it is (like in finder)? In that way I can remember by the order that the images/subjects where researched. I'm doing this in Finder, because Bridge doesn't have this simple feature.

Because the OS doesn't normally store that sort of information.

MacOS apparently is storing that information on some filesystems. It's a new parameter in getattrlist(). But Apple's documentation warns not to use that call directly because some volumes won't support it. The higher level functions don't seem to have that attribute. And a lot of the unix/posix level functions don't list that attribute.

We'll have to see what we can do (which probably means asking Apple for better documentation).

It sounds great, will be so nice to have all the things sorted by the date that it was added on my filesystem.
