When exporting a bunch of edited photos, it exported in random sequence rather than ‘captured date’ sequence. Please correct this.

Hi Irfan,
When you export from Lightroom mobile there are basically no export options. It will just export the jpegs with the file name. The only way to have the capture date is to change the file name and have the capture date in it. You need Lightroom desktop for more options of export, including numbering a sequence of files at moment of export so you can easily sort them by capture date . Hope that I understand your question and that this helps. And I hope that all the export options of the desktop version will get eventually to the mobile version.

The order the files appear after export will depend on where you are viewing them. Different viewing situations will have different sort options.
Where were you viewing them??

I am having a similar issue, is there an easy way to go from Lightroom CC to Classic? (e.g. Export Original and settings and then import?) - then export from Classic (which seems such a convoluted process!)
TIA, Jay
