Unable to sort search results

edited May 6 in iOS [Early Access]

After searching within the app, the results don't provide any sort options. Given some of my search results return 60-70 items, this is proving incredibly painful. Yet another regression from v7.

1Password Version: 8.7.0
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 11.6.5

    Hi @Endareth

    Thanks for your feedback. There are some additional options for finding items within your search results, you can find out more about them here: Search 1Password to find what you need

    That being said, we're open to having a conversation about how the search function in 1Password 8 can be improved, and it's actually a conversation that is already taking place internally. Could you let me know a bit more about how you would like to sort your search results? I can then let you know what functionality currently exists for the use-case and can pass on any feedback about potential improvements to our team. 🙂

    Thanks again

    Okay, so the instructions in that link definitely aren’t working for me on iOS. Regardless of collection or category previously selected, hitting Search always returns results from all vaults and categories.

    As for how I’d hope searching should work, basically exactly as it did in 7. Rather than a separate search screen, a real-time filter along with a sort selector (with sorting options persisted across everywhere that items are listed).

    Common use case for me is browsing through items, then tinkering with filter and sorting to find what I’m after. With the new version, it’s a total disconnect to have to go to a search screen, partially match what I’m looking for to see a small subset of matches, hit another command to see all the matches, then look through them in what appears to be a random order to find what I’m after. I’ve got a couple of thousand items in multiple vaults, having to scroll through dozens and dozens of items every time I need something costs me a lot of time.

    Came here to post about the same thing. Search results don't adhere to the previous sort setting; they appear to just be listed in creation order, oldest to newest. I'm referring to specifically the results (cmd-return), rather than the quick results that show up in the drop down list.
    Once you have the results, there's no visible way to specify the sort of the results.
