RE: Sort By Date Added
Sorry, but I wonder why this issue could not be solved yet.
If you look here: https://forum.minimserver.com/showthread...ation+date
it has been addressed already 6 years ago with a statement of SIMONCN that it's on his list from 14-09-2014, 10:42.
Cite: "I will start work on this when update 43 is released. This should be within the next few days."
By now we have tags like #Audioquality but still no #Creationdate or similar.
MinimServer is such a powerful instrument for managing big music libraries (don't know any better for my NAS), but I too miss this advantage.

RE: Sort By Date Added
I may miss something, but on my Lumin app, the "sort by added" works very well...

it is the icon left to the folder icon, a square with a sparkle in it

Sorry, but maybe I was not clear enough.
I don't want any app. Thanks to MinimServer and UPnP/DLNA, NAS and player(s) work together pretty well without any smartphone/tablet/laptop between them, displaying all the sorting I need to select from my music, except 'last added'.
Just gave '#AudioQuality' a try as an itemTag. It works great to select the Hi-Res files!

Until the feature is available you could use a date tag (like Date or Release Date), a tag editor like Yate (on Mac) let you define simple macros to speed up this kind of operations. Define then in Minimserver an alias for the date tag of your choice and a sort criteria and you’ll have what you need.
The only alternative available, afaik, is to use Lumïn app (I should give it a try, it is a very fine app)

As I'm using MediaMonkey (Gold) for years to maintain my library it's the best workaround for me. I created playlists for this issue with the opportunity to select 'added within the last xxx days'. With 'MediaMonkey Server' running on my laptop the players work with it, but you need an additional device running like for all apps.

I suspect the answer will be No, but if you have a Windows PC, would this thread be useful?

RE: Sort By Date Added
Hi all. Three ideas, particularly for those using Mediamonkey.

You can set one of the custom tags to an added date. I for example set Custom 1 to "Year.Month" where the tag is for Nov 2020: "2020.11". It's then very easy to create auto playlists in Mediamonkey to view your music by date added, in a tree - although you need to create each month's playlist. I've been doing this for 10 years+ so not much work for me each month but it could be a pain if you're starting now.

The other option for viewing in a year/month tree would be to use Magic Nodes (a Mediamonkey addin) and some clever settings. For eg I have the below for Year Bough - Genre - Album:
Bought - Genre - Album|Icon:Top level|Child of:Playlists|Position:Before\<Custom 1|Trim:2>\<Genre>\<Album artist with album>

In order to actually CREATE the Year.Month tag I suspect you could use RegEx Find and Replace (another MM addin) to read the added to library tag and insert something into Custom 1/ whatever.
