sort by last author

it would be great to have the option of sorting my library by the LAST author in the authors list, which is usually the PI.
thanks!
  • I agree with tamireliav10. This feature would allow us to quickly find research articles produced by specific PIs (Labs).

    Thanks.

    I also came looking for this functionality! Seems like it would be simple to implement. And why not add a "First Creator" only column option as well? My personal shorthand for citing papers is FirstAuthor_LastAuthor_Year, and being able to visualize and sort by these parameters in my library would be extremely helpful.
  • This would be very helpful!
  • I also think this could be useful for areas like biology and medicine, where articles are usually remembered by what lab they came out of, i.e. the last author. It would be great if there was an option to add a column to the main pane with the name of the last author.
  • yup, i could need that too. I would be very pleased : )
    If "last author" is not going to be implemented then i would suggest, to implement the possibility to sort after letters or numbers that are assigned to the document/reference from the user. Maybe it is easier to build...
  • Me too, I was looking for that functionality. Did someone find a solution for that?
  • This functionally would be very helpful for us in science as it would help us associate the papers to a given lab (usually last author). Any idea if this feature is in the works? Alternatively, I would be even more helpful have a column that we can customize with wild cards to generate custom sorts.
  • +1 for last author sort. Custom sort with wildcard even better.
  • Not sure when this will happen, but I've created an issue to track this.
  • thanks! looking forward :)
