Products Page - change default sorting method

On the Products page is there anyway to make it so the default list filter is for Newest Product First? Whenever I navigate away from the page and back again it defaults back to Product Title (A-Z).

 

I've tried creating a new view using the + option and this allows me to create and name one, but it doesn't seem to allow me to actually set any filters i.e. when I click on the new view I just created, it just has the same filter parameters as the default settings and I don't know how to change them to list newest first.

Hi @Robert_Smith_UK and @RJ81 

 

Thank you for sharing this feedback. You are correct that the product sort option is static and cannot be saved in a different view at this time. I fully recognize how this can be tedious when moving around the admin and constantly resorting your product list every time you open it again. I have shared this feedback with our developers directly and hopefully we can consider adding this in the future. 

 

In the interim I recommend maybe trying to keep your product list page open in it's own tab and open product details or other admin pages in a new tab.

I was just trying to find an answer to this as well, I haven't found a solution on my own. Main Menu Navigation Tabs defaulting to a-z don't know how to change. Not a problem with collections but for this it seems to be hiding.

Yeh it's super-annoying....it might only take a few seconds to change the filters to what you want but doing this 100's of time a day is starting to make me pull my hair out (and there's not that much left of it tbh!)

This is very frustrating and just wasted a ton o f my time. Please poke the devs for me as well. A saved view should also save the sort order!

And bookmark that tab so it always opens in the view you want

Hello, has this feature been added yet? 

 

This thread is from 6 months ago.

Need to sort by newest first.  Should have a way to track date and time when a listing was created on shopify. 

Amazon has this option since years ago.  Not sure why shopify is taking so long to add this  simple feature.
