Is there any way of customizing the "Recently Added" view of the iTunes Library? I would like to be able to specify a time range, as it used to be possible prior to iTunes 12.4.x. I'm thinking of some kind of hidden plist setting.

I know one can create smart playlists with a "Date Added" field, but that's not what I'm looking for: when choosing "View as Albums", there's no "Sort by date added option", which is what I'd need to replicate the recently added view.


There is no way to change the default Recently Added criteria.

As you already discovered, you can make a Smart Playlist with a limited set of criteria, included Date Added. However, iTunes doesn't allow a sort by Date Added when viewing as albums, unfortunately.
