Lightroom Mobile: Specify Export Order

If I'm exporting a set of photographs that I've edited LR Mobile processes them in a seemingly random order - case in point the first image from a set was IMG_0725.JPG, and the second one was IMG_0684.JPG. This makes it nearly impossible to upload / share them in a chronological order without accidentally skipping one at some point.

It shouldn't be too hard to just process them in the order selected...

I agree! I need to be able to export photos in chronological order for my business. Any solutions or fixes would be great. Overall, I'd appreciate an easier workflow between importing, selecting, and too many steps have made it a bit cumbersome. Otherwise, enjoying Lightroom as an option on my Pixelbook!

Soooo agree! It makes it so difficult! I want to edit my vacay pics with LR but when I did the 165 pics, they are all mixed up! Strange as you are able to sort by date taken within the LR library. I also wish we could apply presets to a lot at the same time! Like in the desktop version. Anyone know if I am just being obtuse about it? Just shocked as I want to use LR for obvi reasons but VSCO makes logistics easier to manage! Grrrr

I cannot edit an image sequence (time lapse) this way because after exporting hundreds of pictures have wrong order!

I need this desperately, it would save me so much time. The recent export updates are nice, but they're completely useless if I can't export the photos in a specified order. It boggles my mind that they would think it's ok to just randomly reordering photo exports like that.

It's absolutely not understandable to see such a great and famous software not to be able or to notice these kind of little things that are easy to fix and which would make our export way easier! I love using Lightroom on my phone or my IPad but there are little thinks like that, which makes me angry (the other thing is about presets management which is horrible)
Adobe please, listen to us the soonest!!!

Must-have feature.  I am currently exporting hundreds of photos one at a time just so they end up in the camera roll in the same order I have Lightroom sort set to.
