Arrange Notification Center by Time of Alert in Mac OS X

The default setting for Notification Center in both OS X and iOS is to sort alerts from apps manually, a setting which doesn’t make much sense if you use Notifications as a timeline of events and want the most recent always on top. Fortunately, changing Notification Center to arrange alerts by time is as simple in OS X as with iOS:

  • Launch System Preferences from the  Apple menu and click the Notifications panel
  • Look for “Sort Notification Center” at the bottom, pull down the submenu to select “Time”

Now Notifications will arrange themselves by time of arrival, with the most recent alert at the very top of the panel. This is a much more useful sorting method for many of us, give it a try.
