From memory, only the written date is logged, so only that can be filtered/displayed/sorted on.
So to be able to filter, what is logged would have to be changed, adding to the memory footprint and changing the zlog file format.
If extra things are logged, then expect requests to be able to filter, display and sort by the extra data.

In the meanwhile, try this cmd command
dir /tc /od *.*

Or this powershell command which does the filter you want
Get-ChildItem -Path C:\Users\someone\Documents -Recurse | Where-Object {$_.CreationTime -gt '2019-01-15'}

You could also read my old (2004) post regarding extending Alt-Filedisplay http://www.ztw3.com/forum/forum_entry.php?id=58373.
