    I've merged your request with the existing feature request for this functionality and updated the title of the combined thread so it is more easily located in the future.

    I agree with this Feature request, I'd like to see time stamps as well if we can.

    I don't want to merge these other thread as they are older than the first post in this thread, so I'll just link instead. They should be considered added to this thread.

    I've carefully merged the threads and updated the old threads so demand for this functionality can be accurately gauged.

    Merged more threads discussing displaying the date modified/timestamp of a file in File Manager.

    I was going to post the same question, but only about the new FileManager. Especially when uploading files, it would be extremely useful to know when the files on the server were last modified. Is this really some information that is simply not available in FileManager?

    We'll move this thread over to the Feature Request forum where an ongoing thread is already started. Just wanted to let you know before moving it.

    Default Clarifications desired

    If you all can help me clarify the following, that would be useful in helping me file a report requesting this functionality:

    - What timezone should the timestamps be displayed in, server time or the user's timezone. Note, if you want the user's timezone to be used, a feature like http://forums.cpanel.net/f145/time-zone-142169.html will need to be implemented before this would be possible.

    - What date format should be used? For example, US customers would be accustomed to mm-dd-yyyy, UK customers would be accustomed to dd-mm-yyyy and experienced sysadmins and programmers may prefer yyyy-mm-dd.

    - This timestamp should only display last modified, correct? It should not display file creation date, correct?

    - What timezone should the timestamps be displayed in, server time or the user's timezone. Note, if you want the user's timezone to be used, a feature like Time Zone will need to be implemented before this would be possible.
    I'm inclined to say that it should be server time. If you do an ls and it shows one time , but file manager shows another, i'm sure that it could be confusing for some people.

    What date format should be used? For example, US customers would be accustomed to mm-dd-yyyy, UK customers would be accustomed to dd-mm-yyyy and experienced sysadmins and programmers may prefer yyyy-mm-dd.
    Maybe human-readable? like Nov 4, 2010?

    - This timestamp should only display last modified, correct? It should not display file creation date, correct?
    In my opinion, it should show the modification date just like ls would.

    All very good points. I will note them in my report to the developers.

    Exclamation Call for Comments

    Please review my proposed report to our developers for accuracy and thoroughness before I submit this to the developers on December 13, 2010.

    Show & allow sorting by date modified in File Manager

    File Manager currently displays much information about files, but many would desire to see the time a file was last modified directly within File Manager. This should be displayed in an additional column in the File Manager UI that can be sorted, such as by clicking the title of the column.

    To be consistent with ls, and other mechanisms, the date displayed should be the date modified (not date created).

    File modification times, to be consistent with ls output, cron job times and other mechanisms should be displayed using the server's system time and not localized to the user's timezone.

    A human readable format like 4-Nov-2010 or Nov 4, 2010 would greatly assist in avoiding misunderstandings as a result of regional differences in date formats.

    Our developers are working on this feature. I do not have an ETA for when it will be available yet, but it is nearing the final stages of development.

    Since 11.30 is now in all release tiers, I am closing and archiving this request. If you experience any issues with this feature, feel welcome to submit a support ticket. If there is anything you would like to see added to the product, feel welcome to create a new Feature Request thread.
