Is it possible to sort photos by export date? That would be amazingly useful!!

sorting by other elements in develop module could also be useful, such as 'converted to B/W', or processed with a particular preset.

I don't think that export date is written down anywhere in the Lightroom database, so even a plug-in couldn't help you with this goal. Jeffrey's Data Explorer plugin allows you to create collections based on many develop settings, if that helps.

It is recorded in the database - that's why you see it in the History panel. But unfortunately there is no ability to filter or search on History data, and it isn't accessible to plugins. I guess there will already be feature requests for both capabilities. There's so much information in the catalogue that we could use to help us make better use of our time.

"Converted to B&W" is searchable - look for "Treatment".
