Emais dates in lists/folders/projects

Hi,
It would be great to see in lists/folders/projects the last date in thread.

Ex: when I select a folder, I have no idea if the emails have 1 day, a month, year or decade... I have to open each one to see dates.

Thanks

    I don't know if this would be implemented. Can you let us have some more information about you, your role etc.

    Can you also add the following:

    * your role
    * a bit about your workflow
    * how you see this helping your workflow
    * why it would make a difference to your workflow

    It helps us see why something that would be useful and why.

  • Hello Lisa,

    I work as an independent consultant in IT and management.
    I use AiB to keep emails from customers and suppliers organised. Also I keep emails for a long time (10 years is a long time in my opinion...) for archive purpose.

    I use label types for customers and suppliers, and folders to classify proposals, technical issues, invoices, and other documents.

    As an example when I select a label "C/Alipio", folder "Proposal" with "Show mail and done", thus meaning all my proposals to customer Alipio, I can't see the email date, and with several emails with similar descriptions I have to open each one to see the date.

    In the same way I receive several invoices from my suppliers and I have no idea if a invoice is from the last week, month, year.

    So I have to open several emails to get the right one.

    I know we do not work all the same, but to me it's more relevant to see the email date than the emails adresses.

    I think with a small effort you can add the date to your email view... ;)

    Hello Lisa,

    I saw you added the option to sort emails by email date, that helped something in managing dates, but I still missing the date next to the email.

    Any plans to display date in lists, types, folders?

  • Hello Paulo

    I've asked Andy - I'll see how many requests we have to change the current layout and then see if it's a popular ask. I know one or two people have asked over the years but not a large number.
