Bug date sorting


My first bug on Glide :frowning:

Here is the thing : when I filter the date the order is not good at all and I don’t understand anything about this random order. It happens particularly when I want to have the most recent date on top…

Does somebody would know what’s happening ?

In the google sheet it works just fine : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AycsGxTsa7Qta4h6sbma_Gvihtqydl7mzfi2VsltVcM/edit?usp=sharing

The google sheet is just a test so everybody can play around

Thanks for you help

Have you tried formatting your date data as “mm/dd/yyyy”?

Yes and it works thank you @ThinhDinh ! but is there a way to keep it dd/mm/yyyy and still have it working correcly ? I’m in France and people wont get this mm/dd/yyyy format unfortunately …

Hi Antoine, please check your app again if it correctly displays now.

I’m not sure what caused the error, what I did was just extract the day, month, year and then combine them back in again using a DATE formula.

Looks like it’s ok now.

yyyy/mm/dd is a safe format internationally. As long a Glide recognizes the column as date, you should be able to set the formatting for the date in the data viewer and it should adjust by user’s country or region.

Thanks to both of you for your answers, what worked really well was to configure the column as a date in the Data Panel. It solved the problem, the filter works great new. Thanks @Jeff_Hager
