I need to be able to sort the outline view by modified date. My workflow process depends on looking at the most recent things I've made changes to.

In Beta 40 you can sort the outline by Modification Date.

In the Beta, the easiest way to view which files have changed recently is to use the project search function, enter an asterisk * into the search field, and then under the Search Results, there will be a drop-down for sorting; choose Sort by Date, then select Newest First.

You can save this search (click on the loupe icon) as a collection, so you can quickly return to it any time you like.

If you want to see a list of modified documents with the specific date & time of last modification, you can select all (CTRL-a), and then go into outline mode and enable the appropriate columns for your needs.
