We'll solve this as part of #5162.

Re-opening this issue as a place to work out functionality bugs in Description updates - it seems that developing it into "Newest Additions" will not happen for 2.0 (bumped to 2.1 - see #5162, and notes added therein) - but since we have a mostly functional module that previously existed in 1.3.1, we might as well try to work out the kinks here and include it in 2.0, so users aren't losing features in the meantime.

Tim Hutchinson's testing notes from #5162:

This may be one of the adjustments that Jesús mentioned, but I noticed that currently (2.0.0 - 102), if date of creation is chosen, the order is still date of revision (but date of creation is displayed). To reproduce, follow the steps re test 1, test 2, etc. in #5634 including the first comment.

Also from #5162, I'd argue it's crucial to re-introduce the ability to filter by date (especially to extend the start date to earlier than the default)

This is a compromise fix.

With discussion around #5162 (considering how to redesign this page and make some content available to public users as a Newest updates page) and the inherent challenges in migrating functionality into 2.x's elasticsearch model, we were very close to losing all initial functionality on this feature for the 2.0.0 release. We have lost the date filter in this fix, and I agree with Tim that it should be re-introduced as soon as possible. But we've managed to include most functionality, and will be pushing the redesign to a future release.

I'd like to see facets considered for this page, or at least the ability to filter by repository and by user (for admins). Future functionality to consider, if there is interest in developing this module further, might be to show change snippets (there are many examples of how this could be done in a user friendly way); show a class of revision (edit, move, attach digital object, link storage, link actor, etc) and offer that as a way to filter revisions, etc.

Future discussions on enhancements to the module will be pushed to #5162. Marking this as verified for now, with the hopes of re-introducing the date filter soon.
