We've created this post to address some issues with sorting and managing music collections on the Windows Phone 8, as compiled by dmmontal in the Master List Of Issues With XBox Music On WP8 thread. We'll be continue to update this thread with news as we work towards a resolution to these items.
- Device only sorts albums by Name, not Date (WP7 devices sorted albums by date). Can we have an on-device option to choose? Any other sort options (i.e. sort by Album Artist) would also be very useful.
- Cannot delete entire folders on phone at once (i.e. delete an entire Album, Artist, etc.) – can only check off and delete individual songs. WP7 did at least allow for the manual deletion of complete albums, playlists, etc.
