Add Dates to the Media Element List block

Add Dates to the Media Element List block


After setting up our Vimeo Media Sync plugin, I noticed that it's very difficult to find a video the Media Element List block in folders that have a lot of videos. It would be much easier if we had a date column to sort or filter on.

I'd like to see either the MediaElement.SourceCreatedDateTime or the MediaElement.SourceModifiedDateTime field added to the grid. I tried adding it myself using the Custom Grid Options tab in the block settings, but the Row merge field in Custom Columns feature appears to just contain plain text that says, "RockWeb.Blocks.Cms.FolderList".
