Sort Albums by Artist by Year

Recommended Posts

I use Folders sorting mode, and I simply prefix each folder name with the release year whenever I want an artist's work to be displayed chronologically. But I agree that sorting each artist's albums by Year rather than by Title within other categories would be a nice option

Ok, I played around with it some more and I see what you mean. When I select an artist it shows all of their songs and it gives an option to sort by year. What I'm looking for is a way to see all of an artists albums listed seperately by year instead of showing all of the tracks total.

Just use the Artists category, which shows you a list of artists (I'd suggest sorting that level By Name). Then when you drill down into an Artist to see all their albums, set the List Options sort order at that level to By Year.

Ahhh I got it now thanks! Yea I've always just searched for artists instead of going to the list level. I'll do it this way now. 

It would be easier to be able to get this option when searching for an artist though. I have 756 artists in my library so scrolling to find the right one can be tricky 😅

Thanks Andrew!

There is no Sort facility for global search results, but if you search locally from within a Category (e.g. Artists) then you can use List Options to sort the results by Year if you want. The results are an all-songs flat list though, so you won't be able to drill-down into albums, but at least the list will be arranged by year.
