Hi, im trying to change the order of products by date: Newest to Oldest. 

Changing the published date on the products does not affect this. so how can i reorder my collection that is sorted by Date? thanks in advance

Date ordering uses creation date, not published date.

Creation date is only saved when creating a product. The only way to "change" would to be make a new product and remove the old one.

@Kimberly - Is the count of products in your collection less than 50? If so, it would be possible to make some theme edits so the collection is ordered by published date.

the easiest way would be to duplicate the product that you want to change it's date then delete the old one
