Crates primarily displays feeds of tracks, which often contain hundreds/thousands of tracks. If you sorted by artist, label, or track name, the returned list wouldn’t be very useful.
Could you guys give some examples of columns you’d want to sort by, and in what context?
Crates now supports filtering by Beatport genre, release date, and musical key, so I think that might cover most of the use cases here.
In regards to adding or removing columns – I like that idea. What columns from Beatport would you want to be able to add, besides genre?Tony Langley commented
I think it would be useful to be able to sort by any column, just as you can in iTunes. I found I wanted to sort by track length earlier to move all the radio edits to one end (so I can ignore them).Tony Langley commented
I'd like to be able to sort by label to group results and work through them label by label.Tony Langley supported this idea ·
