Filter By Date?

How do I get a filtered list of issues by date? Like, everything released during a specific month. The filters on the Comics page don’t seem to work for that.

Hi Alacrity, which device are you using? It seems that while we do have a sort by date feature on some devices, it has disappeared from others. Thanks!

I primarily use an Android tablet, but the website does the same thing. Hit the Filter icon (or click All Comics on the website), choose Date Range, pick a month (e.g., 4/1/2019 - 5/1/2019), and you get a very small set of results (for the example, only three titles come up.) No other filter options have been chosen. This is not new behavior; the old app did the same thing.

It seems the Date Range field is hitting titles that started in the date range (issue #1), rather than returning individual issues published during the range.

Edit: The more I think about it, the more I suspect the “All Comic Series → Date Range” filter is intended for Titles, rather than Issues. So I guess this becomes a Feature Request - please add a Filter for Issue Date Range.

Did they ever fix this? I just came to the app?

@dwintman.44807 Hmm, it seems like this persists on my end. No worries, though, I’ve re-escalated this issue/feature request to our team! :slight_smile:

Btw welcome to the community! Glad to have you here.

Hey!

This issue does still persist. The team is aware of the issue and fixing it is on their to-do list, but no ETA on that. We’ll let you know when the issue is resolved, keep an eye out for patch notes!

I think the main thing we are missing here is filtering issues by date whether in all comics or lists. There are no filters in lists which we need. I was part of a focus group almost a year ago and brought this up and still nothing. Very frustrating. I would even be happey hearing it was coming in a few months. Something to acknowledge the gap.

I’ve been away from the app for awhile, using the Unlimited, and my favorite thing is to be able to read through all the issues by publication date. I hope this gets fixed soon. I’m itching to be able to read back through the early 90s stuff and not just the Triangle issues

Fingers crossed!

This has been my single biggest request.

Sorting by date does zero good If it then lists a ton of titles.

We The readers, need a sort issue by date feature.

I want to simulate walking into a Comic shop and seeing all the issues available on the stands that day.

This should not be as difficult as it seems to be, and really should have been there from the beggining.

Welcome back to the community @donopolis.40080! Thanks for giving us your feedback, we appreciate it.

I’ll go ahead and note down that another person is asking for this!
