tyekynan created the topic: List View sort by date

Hello, I have been having issues sorting my list view by date.

Currently, my date format is mm-dd-YYYY.

When I choose the date column to be sorted, it seems to only sort the years as the months and days are in no particular order.

How can I correctly format my date as mm-dd-YYYY and it sort from now until infinite, in order.

Hello,

Go to View tab of the view that you've created and click on Advanced Options.
Then you can set Initial sort order based on calendar filed that you want.
The issue with this is that it orders values alphabetically, it doesn't recognize that Calendar field with dates is in question.

Therefore, the only way to have records ordered by dates inserted in calendar field is to use YYYY-mm-dd format instead of the one you are using now. In that case, dates will be properly sorted.

Let me know whether this helped.

Regards,

Mihaela
